If you live in the Topeka area, be sure to join AARP Kansas and the Better Business Bureau to learn more about protecting you and your family from frauds and scams — especially during the holiday season.  Topeka is one of the nation’s largest metro areas for fraud complaints. Find out about current scams and how to spot them from Jeff Lanza, Retired FBI Special Agent. Lanza has dedicated his life to keeping people safe from fraud. With more than 25 years with the FBI, he has investigated corruption, fraud, cybercrime and organized crime.

Lanza will be in Topeka on Monday, December 4, 2017 at the Topeka Public Library for a workshop that is free and open to the public. He’ll deliver a program that is informative and engaging with a touch of humor. Program topics include:

  • Protecting personal information from ID Theft
  •         How to avoid social engineering, spoofing and spam phone calls
  •         Preventing e-mail hijacking, account takeovers and social networking fraud
  •         How to be safe online when e-mailing, shopping and communicating

The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and runs until 10:45 a.m. A light snack will be provided. While the event is free, we ask that you register prior to the event by calling 877-926-8300 or by clicking here.
