The biggest shopping season of the year is, unfortunately, also the biggest scamming season. Criminals are out in force during the holidays trying to steal your money and personal information. Learn about ways to help protect you and your loved ones.
Do you know ways to help keep your aging loved ones from losing money to scams and fraud? We’ll share important information that could help you keep them safe during our free webinar.
If you’ve been the victim of a scam and don’t know where to turn, we’re here to help! Volunteers from our Fraud Watch Network Helpline will be standing by to talk to you live during our first-ever, online “Fraudcast” – a special event we’ve planned just for you!
Consumers, take note! Next Thursday, November 15 the Financial Fraud Institute will be holding a free fraud presentation with experts from federal and local law enforcement and regulatory agencies. They will outline steps to spot and avoid fraud, as well as provide information about what to do if you believe you have been the target of a scam. Register here or call 801-579-6191 to reserve your seat, as space in limited.
AARP Utah and Fox 13 held our four annual shredding event in Midvale and Ogden, and it was a rousing success! Unfortunately, so many of you came out to shred that Shred-it's trucks in Midvale were filled to capacity before everyone made it through the line. Therefore, they've generously offered their services to those people who came out but weren't able to shred their documents on July 14.
Every two seconds, someone's identity is stolen, but you can help protect yourself against fraud by shredding sensitive documents you no longer need, such as old tax returns, bank statements, credit card information or offers, health records, and employment forms--anything that contains your personal identifying information that thieves can use to steal your identity.
