Avoiding Scams - Free Workshop in Kansas City, June 13

SPOTTING AND AVOIDING SCAMS IN OUR COMMUNITIES

Every year, scammers defraud our communities of hundreds of millions of dollars by selling fake services and worthless products for everything from housing and health to debt collection, jobs and education. People might not feel comfortable reporting fraud when they have experienced it, but talking about scams is vital. Our briefing will bring together law enforcement officials, community advocates and consumers to talk about the scams that are on the rise and what people can do to protect themselves and their neighbors.

This event is sponsed by Ethnic Media Services and The Federal Trade Commision.
