He will provide information on warning signs, methods and tactics used by scammers. His presentation is interactive and he will answer audience questions. He will also discuss how to protect yourself and what to do if you become a victim of a crime. Scammers often prey on financial motivations, fear, or pressure to respond quickly.  Older adults are especially vulnerable.
