Tips and techniques on outfoxing fraudsters

Financial fraud is so common today that it has become one of our century’s leading crimes. Seniors are often the particular target of this theft, causing devastating loss of both savings and financial security for those later in life. It is possible, though, to out-fox these scamming thieves.

On August 10, Barbara Martin-Worley of the District Attorney’s office will be presenting on how to beat the three basic kinds of fraud. Her tips on fighting identity theft, investment fraud and elder-aimed exploitation will be geared especially toward elders living in Arapahoe County. Barbara will show participants how to spot fraud and prevent it—detecting and stopping the persuasion tactics of phone scammers, defending bank accounts and protecting personal identity. 

 Did you know:

·            Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America, and Colorado ranks as the eleventh highest state for it.

·           One of the most common scams are callers who claim you owe money to the IRS.

·            Never give out your personal or financial information over the phone; doing so is one of the #1 ways to get cheated!

The seminar is hosted by the Holly Creek Retirement Community and starts at 11:30am followed by lunch. Both opportunities are free. However, seating is limited, so please RSVP to 720.897.3624.
