According to the AARP’s FraudWatch Network, someone’s identity is stolen every two seconds. On Wednesday, Nov. 7, a free presentation in Torrington will offer tips to keep your identity safe.
The Goshen County AARP Community Action Group, Pinnacle Bank of Wyoming, and the Goshen County Senior Friendship Center will offer a free presentation on avoiding fraud and identity theft from 10-11:30 a.m.on Nov. 7 at the Torrington Friendship Center. The presentation is free, open to the public, and a free lunch will be served after the presentation.
Pinnacle Bank Loan Officer, Wade Bruch, will present ways to fight identity theft. His presentation will highlight different types of fraud and identity theft; offer an overview of phishing, social engineering and spoofing; discuss the Do Not Call List; examine ways to review your credit; and perhaps most importantly, he will go over what to do if you are the victim of fraud or identity theft.
