Investor education and charitable giving will be among the topics taking center stage when officials from the Secretary of State’s Office, the Department of Justice and Department of Insurance speak at Scam Jam on Friday, November 14 in Moore County.

 

A representative from the NC Secretary of State’s Office will discuss the risk of fraud in investment schemes as well as fake charity scams, and will offer important tips for steering clear of con artists.

 

This event will be held on Friday, November 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Moore County Department of Aging, 8040 U.S. Hwy 15-501 just outside of Pinehurst. This event is free and open to the public. Media coverage is welcomed.

 

Scam Jam workshops are designed to educate the public about a range of financial issues that are vitally important to senior citizens. Scam Jam goers will learn more about the threat of identity theft, how to establish a protective ‘freeze’ on their credit report and how to protect their credit card information. Presenters will also provide information about how to receive truly free credit reports and avoid Medicare fraud.
