Augustana’s Senior Ministry Team and Home Instead Home Care are co-sponsoring Fraud and Scam Prevention Training for adults 60+ and their families and caregivers, Wednesday, August 17, 10–11 a.m., Fellowship Hall. Lynn Lowe, Senior Resource Navigator, City and County of Denver Police Department, is the presenter.
This training will focus on these three objectives:
Realize how anyone can be a victim of a scam.
Discover how to recognize red flags and prevent victimization.
Learn what to do if you have been scammed.
Why attend this training?
Scams are ever-evolving and can be highly-sophisticated scenarios that seem plausible. With scam attempts and victim numbers on the rise, it is important to understand the science behind the scam and why scammers are successful. Most scam crimes are not prosecutable, so prevention is key. There are multiple types of scams, and scammers can often be relentless. The best way we can protect ourselves is to learn and recognize the red flags. Knowing what to look for and knowing what support is available is the best way to keep your information and money safe.
We will discuss phone scams, phishing scams, and online safety as well as what to do if you have been scammed.
Hope you can join us for this important educational event. Refreshments will be served!
