Be part of the conversation. The Community Foundation will share tips and resources on how you can protect yourself, your family and friends, and your neighbors. Our upcoming third Coffee and Conversation virtual gathering will feature presentations from three area experts:

Lynda Hascheff
Opportunity Alliance

Tim Johnston
Better Business Bureau

Thomas Dahdouh, Western Region Director, Federal Trade Commission

Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and share your story. Perhaps you spotted a red flag and stopped a scammer. Share your story to help others.

Scammers exploit situations when people are most vulnerable. The COVID-19 brought in a great amount of uncertainty, which scammers saw as an opportunity to exploit individuals. During this time, there were prevalent scams relating to stimulus checks, economic impact payments, and many more. The IRS, Federal Trade Commission, and the Nevada Attorney General constantly warned us of COVID-19 related scams. 

With businesses reopening, the community slowly recovering and figuring out the new norm, this time may be an opportunity for scammers to find new and creative ways to exploit our community. 

Despite the prevalence of scams, we know good things happen when our community comes together. We hope you will join us.

Thank you!
