Winslow House Party Room
100 2nd St. S.E.
Financial crimes including scams, identity theft and consumer fraud are the most frequently attempted crimes every day in the United States. Technology has made it easier for criminals to access personal information and financial accounts from anywhere in the world—and cover their tracks. Learn how you can better protect yourself and avoid liability for losses. This presentation is based on analysis of undercover FBI recordings of con-artists in action, consumer protection laws and reports from crime victims. Jay Haapala is Associate State Director of Community Engagement with AARP Minnesota and leads the state's Fraud Watch Network, which serves to educate consumers about fraud, scams and identity theft.
