Community Foundation of Western Nevada Launches Newest Initiative:

Preventing Financial Scams

There are many financial scams.

  • Strange calls asking for your Social Security Number.
  • A romantic partner controlling finances.
  • Caregivers exploiting the elderly.
  • A family member making suspicious cash withdrawals.
  • Predatory loans.
  • Someone claiming they need your bank account number to stop a scam.

When our community comes together, good things happen. We want to hear from you. If you or someone you know has experienced a financial scam, or you represent an organization addressing these issues, please spread the word and join us.
