New! Don’t Be a Victim of Frauds and Scams
1 session, 3 hours
We all know by now not to send money to the “prince who needs our help to transfer his fortune to America” but what are some of the other frauds and scams that thieves use to steal our money and property from us? What type of people are the most vulnerable to scammers, and how do they get us to fall for their tricks? Most importantly, how can we protect our own information and assets so that we will not be the next victim of a cunning thief? Learn how to be a “Fraud Fighter” for yourself and for your loved ones, and to shut down potential scams before they hit you.
