Have you been a victim of fraud? Do you know the signs and how to be best aware? Next week we'll be co-hosting a session along with the Grinnell Police Department, St. Francis Manor & Seeland Park and Mayflower Community, to educate individuals of various scams and the signs of fraud in an effort to help protect community members from becoming victims.
Recognizing that Grinnell is home to many retirees, and the 'grandparent scams' are becoming more and more prevalent not only across the country but right here in our backyard, we decided to take action and host an informational session to help generate more awareness.
Anyone (friends, family, neighbors, community members, young, old - you name it!) is invited to attend the free session to hear from fraud expert Neil Shultz with AARP and Al Perales with the Iowa Attorney General's Office. The session will be held next Tuesday, June 25 at 10:00 a.m. at Drake Community Library and RSVP's are encouraged though not required.
Join our business community as we collectively learn more about ways to prevent and recognize fraud and how we can work together to keep our community members protected. You can find more information and sign-up here.
