IMG_0020Learn how to outsmart investment fraud and protect your hard-earned nest egg at two FREE events in Lincoln on Sept. 5.

AARP Nebraska and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are hosting the sessions led by experts from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the AARP Foundation.

Investment fraud affects thousands of Americans and accounts for billions in lost savings every year. Older investors are particularly vulnerable to scams, yet the majority do not perceive themselves as being at risk.

The profile of a typical victim is someone who is financially knowledgeable, has above average income, and is college-educated and self-reliant when it comes to making decisions.

Attend this interactive and dynamic workshop to increase your investor savvy. Learn to recognize the persuasion tactics and the steps you – and every investor – can take to reduce the risk of being defrauded. Watch a preview here.
