AARP Maryland has teamed up with Baltimore County Restoring Elder Safety Today (BC-REST) to cosponsor a workshop on Thursday, June 15, to help Baltimore-area residents avoid financial abuse.

In 2016, Maryland ranked seventh among the states in per capita complaints of fraud and identity theft filed with the Federal Trade Commission. Con artists often target people who have been building a nest egg for years.

The workshop will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Randallstown Community Center, 3505 Resource Drive, in Randallstown.

A shredding event will follow from 1 to 3 p.m. Participants who preregister can bring one bag or box of documents to shred for free.

To register, go to aarp.cvent.com/BCShred17 or call 877-926-8300 toll-free. To volunteer to help at the event, email Joy Hall at  jhall@aarp.org.
