Date: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
The public is invited to attend a free presentation on the current wave of scams attacking personal security, and how to stay protected from them, on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, in Warren. Entitled "Protect Yourself: Phone & Mail Scams", the presentation is offered through the Senior Brigade initiative of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette's office, and will be hosted by the Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers program.
"Protect Yourself: Phone & Mail Scams" is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on January 29 at Church of the Master, 30200 Schoenherr Road, north of Common, in Warren. The event is free of charge and open to the public. RSVPs are requested to ensure adequate seating: Call (586) 757-5551.
Con artists have sneaky ways of trying to separate people from their money, and the most common methods of coming between you and your finances are through bogus mail, emails, and telephone calls. "Protect Yourself: Phone & Mail Scams" will review common scams, offer tips on how to reduce incoming phone calls and junk mail, and give details on how to report a problem or scam.
The presentation is a part of the Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers monthly Volunteer Enrichment series. Founded in 1992, IVC provides free, reliable support to over 500 frail, older and disabled adults each year in Macomb and parts of Oakland counties who need extra help to remain safe and independent in their own homes.
