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.

Meet around the table with neighbors and the Community Foundation to discuss your ideas about the issues of Financial Scams.
This free gathering is open to anyone who cares.

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.
