There is a vulnerable population targeted everyday by less than honest individuals. They are closest to you, me, your neighbor and are stalked by phone, door, mail and internet. Billions of dollars are silently stolen each year. Fortunately, you can help before it is too late.
“They” are senior citizens and are most often targeted by scammers so slick, the person doesn’t realize it’s a scam until it is too late. Better Business Bureau® and FINRA Investor Education Foundation are reaching out to consumers at several branches of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County about how to avoid risky investments and unlicensed brokers through a series of public forums on the topic.
The information provided in the seminar is relevant not just for seniors but for caregivers, family members and anyone interested in keeping their personal information safe. The sessions last for an hour followed by a question and answer period. The best part? All of these forums are free. So come join BBB and FINRA for an hour and learn how these schemes work, what signs to look for and how to best protect your family members from scammers.
