Con artists are counting on you to figure that you know better than to get taken, and to let it go at that. You may be well aware of the latest tricks and have all the tips down to fight ID theft, online crime, bogus mailings and phone fraud. What about your kids, parents or grandparents?

AARP invites Cincinnatians of all ages to attend our free Scam Jam on Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014, from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center to hear what the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Better Business Bureau and AARP Fraud Watch Network advises to arm citizens against fraud and ID theft.

Join us for a complimentary continental breakfast and opening remarks at 8:30 a.m. AARP volunteer leader Ed Cokley will tell you what we learned in our latest survey that is putting Ohioans at greatest risk. Ryan Lippe of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office will talk about identity theft, cyber-attacks and tools to thwart criminals.

We’re offering free boxed lunches before Sandra Guile of the Better Business Bureau talks about investment fraud, followed by a panel that will take audience questions. Finally, we will be awarding a document shredder and other door prizes to Scam Jam participants.

Our Scam Jam at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Sharonville, OH 43246, is free and open to all ages. Please RSVP online or by calling toll-free 1-877-926-8300.
