Identity Theft and Scams Seminar

April 25, 2019
The scams and identity theft techniques are getting more sophisticated by the minute. Directly or indirectly, everyone will be affected by these crimes in their lifetimes. No one is safe or immune and if you are a victim, it can quickly take your money, damage your reputations, ruin your credit, and jeopardize your ability to buy or rent a home. It can ruin a life in fractions of a second and you won’t even see it coming.

Yet, identity theft, scams and fraud are some of the most under reported crimes in America. Some of the reasons victims do not report the crimes are embarrassment, hopelessness and a general lack of understanding on how to effectively fight back.

The Redwood Community Action Agency is assembling a panel of experts from law enforcement, legal, senior advocacy, and banking fields to discuss identity theft and scams affect us in Humboldt. You’ll learn what to do, what to look out for and what your first step should be if you find yourself a victim of these crimes. Panelists will share their professional opinions and advice on how to protect yourself and keep you one step ahead of those who want to steal all you have worked for.

This free seminar is open to the public and will be held Thursday, May the 9th, 6pm to 8pm at the Humboldt County Library, located in Eureka on 1313 Third Street. For further information, call Randy Aronson at the Redwood Community Action Agency, 707 269 2016.
