Prime Timers Scammer Presentation
The Prime Timers will be hosting a presentation about scammers on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at 9:30 AM in the St. Francis Room. Amanda Larkin with the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office will do a Power Point Presentation. Every year, Louisiana citizens lose money to telephone scams—from a few dollars to their life savings. Scammers will say anything to cheat people out of money. In this session, attendees will learn how to spot, stop, and avoid common phone scams, especially lottery, tech support, “grandparent” and other imposter scams where callers trick consumers into sending them money by pretending to be a friend or relative in distress or a representative of a government agency or a well-known company. Attendees will also learn strategies for empowering friends, neighbors, and family in the fight against fraud.
