As part of the Idaho Scam Jam Alliance, AARP Idaho is working to arm consumers with the information and tools they need to guard against fraud and identity theft.

This month, the coalition of nonprofit organizations and state agencies is sponsoring two free Scam Jams in the southeastern part of the state. The first is Monday, May 14, 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m., at the Pocatello Clarion Inn, in Pocatello. The other is Tuesday, May 15, 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m., at the Shilo Inn in Idaho Falls.

The free events include lunch, and registration is required. To reserve a seat, go to aarp.cvent.com/scamjampocatello2018 or aarp.cvent.com/scamjamidfalls2018.
