Scam Jam
Social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and any app that lets you connect (chat) with people can provide a convenient way to interact with others. It is important to remember that scammers also commonly use these platforms to find victims. Scammers often create fake profiles and pretend to either be someone you know, someone you want to know or an entity you trust. Because there are fake profiles it is difficult to know who you can trust on social media sites. The following are some red flags that you might be targeted by a scammer on Facebook or another social media platform:

On Saturday, June 11th, thousands of teal-clad women, men and children will come together at Denver’s City Park for the 13th annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness benefitting the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA). For survivors who have battled ovarian cancer, this showing of solidarity and support provides hope, inspiration and invaluable connections. Judy Sherman (69), who attended her first Jodi’s Race in 2019 just one month after completing her first round of chemotherapy, recalls the power of the beads. At the Race, each survivor is given a strand of beads for every year of survival since their initial diagnosis. “I looked around and saw all these women with their necks draped in beads,” recalls Sherman. “I walked up to several and asked them if I could touch their beads for luck. It gave me such strength.”
