Scams, Fraud, and Con-Artists

26 August, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Consumer fraud of every type is on the increase. From imposters claiming to be IRS agents to computer tech support scams, to bulk-mailed contests, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of attempts to defraud the public. Even newborn infants are being targeted for identity theft via stolen Social Security numbers. This presentation provides clear examples of scams and concrete protection steps for all ages. Written information and resources will be handed out including a national hotline to assist people who feel they may have become victims. Elliott Greenblott is the Volunteer Coord. for the VT AARP Fraud Watch Network, presenting seminars throughout the state. His bi-weekly column on fraud, scams, and con-artists is published in the Bennington Banner, Berkshire Eagle, Brattleboro Reformer, Manchester Journal, and the Caledonian-Record in St. Johnsbury.
