 The psychology behind ID theft, fraud and other scams

 This presentation discusses what triggers the emotional state that prevents us from making rational, common sense decisions when confronted with a scam. Also discussed are ways by which you can recognize and avoid scams that once in this emotional state, may lead to making impulsive decisions. Information on the latest, most popular scams will be presented, as well as ways to combat them, and practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your family. Attendees will be provided with useful resources and common strategies to fight off frauds and scams.
