AARP Weapons of Fraud
“AARP Weapons of Fraud,” a presentation by Elliot Greenblott, will be June 19 at 10 a.m. Greenblott provides helpful tips on staying out of the grip of con artists. The program is free and is appropriate for all ages. “Consumer fraud of every type is on the increase. From the imposters claiming to be IRS agents to the computer tech support scams, to the bulk-mailed contests, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of attempts to defraud the public,” says Greenblott. The presentation provides clear examples of scams and concrete protection steps for all ages.
