Scams and fraud presentation at Grafton Public Library

GRAFTON, Vt. – Join us at the Grafton Public Library Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. for a timely presentation by AARP Fraud Watch Network Vermont Coordinator, Elliott Greenblott, in cooperation with People’s United Bank. This hour-long program will focus on current scams and tactics being used to defraud the public and provide helpful tips on staying out of the grip of con artists. According to Greenblott, “Consumer fraud of every type is on the increase. Incidences of imposters claiming to be IRS agents, computer tech support scams, and identity theft are all on the rise.”

While seniors are often the target of fraud, few people may realize that children are more frequently targeted for identity theft and it may be years before it is discovered. Adults of all ages will benefit from the resources and information shared in this program.

This is a chance to be proactive and learn about concrete steps to protect yourself and your family in a supportive atmosphere, without cost to the participant.

For more information about this program, which is free and open to the public, please contact librarian@graftonpubliclibrary.org or call 802-843-2404.
