Presentations will be given on the latest scams and how consumers can protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud or identity theft. Participants do not have to register and there is no charge to attend.
The workshop will be held at 3:00 PM at the Plymouth Public Library located at 201 North Center Street, Plymouth, Indiana.
“I look forward to partnering with the Attorney General’s office to raise awareness for senior citizens and Hoosier families about fraud and identity theft protection,” said Congresswoman Walorski. “These workshops provide an educational opportunity to highlight various types of fraud that continue to target innocent citizens in an effort to increase public safety in our communities.”
“One of the most important duties our office performs is visiting Hoosiers to discuss various scams and prevention methods,” Zoeller said. “Through free workshops we hope to let consumers know the Attorney General’s Office is here to help whether it’s cracking down on illegitimate businesses or helping identity theft victims. I appreciate the efforts of Congresswoman Walorski to help strengthen our public awareness efforts.”
The event is cosponsored by Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. Michelle Mayer, director of outreach services with the Attorney General’s Office, will share information on the importance of protecting personal and financial information, and how to check your credit report and place a freeze on your credit. For those unable to attend, information on the latest scams and consumer complaint forms are available at www.IndianaConsumer.com.
