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.
â€śI look forward to partnering with the Attorney Generalâ€™s office to raise awareness for senior citizens and Hoosier families about fraud and identity theft protection,â€ť said Congresswoman Walorski.Â â€śThese 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.â€ť
â€śOne of the most important duties our office performs is visiting Hoosiers to discuss various scams and prevention methods,â€ť Zoeller said. â€śThrough free workshops we hope to let consumers know the Attorney Generalâ€™s Office is here to help whether itâ€™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.â€ť
The event is cosponsored by Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. Michelle Mayer, director of outreach services with the Attorney Generalâ€™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.
