On Wednesday, September 21st, the Warren County Home and Community Education is inviting the entire public to attend their ‘Be Money Smart and How to Spot Frauds and Scams’ informational meeting, explains HCE Member Diane Fedorow:
“We have all gotten those calls, texts, e-mails, letters, or seen something on TV that sounded to good to be true and usually it is some type of a scam. Or how you can win a lottery or prize and never been in a contest. We are going to have several handouts from the University of Illinois Extension and those have all been sourced. One of them is how to spot frauds and scams and the other is medical identity theft. We are looking forward to hearing from Security Savings President Brad Ray. He is going to be speaking about what he faces at the bank. We are also going to have somebody from the Monmouth Police Department on how to report a scam.”
The meeting will be held at the Farm Bureau Building, 1000 North Main Street in Monmouth at 6 pm.
