Financial Literacy: Identifying & Avoiding Scams at the Somers Library
Thursday, June 27, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Scammers target bank customers, especially the elderly, because of the size of their assets, their tendency to be more trusting or the likelihood of their being stressed by family, medical and financial problems. Seniors especially can be targeted because they are more likely to be suffering from declining cognitive skills, making them more vulnerable to fraud and manipulation. This program, presented by Therese-Maureen LaMarche and created by the American Bankers Association, will offer valuable information to help identify and avoid being scammed.
This presentation will help participants:
Understand the nature of scams and recognize the warning signs
Take appropriate action if they become the victim of fraud
Build protective barriers against scams
Appreciate the role that banks can play in helping them to avoid and deal with financial fraud and exploitation
Registration is required; please register online at www.somerslibrary.org or call 914-232-5717.
