During the holidays we are prime targets for identity fraud and scams. Our credit cards are in constant use both online and in retail stores, various charitable organizations are asking for our help, and our mailboxes are filled with bill, offers, and personal correspondence. The distracted, the elderly, and the trusting are all vulnerable. How can we protect our identity and our good credit?
Mike Savenelli of BCI Financial (Cheshire, CT) will be at the library on Monday, November 19 at 6:30 PM to present a workshop on
Identity Fraud and Scams. He will cover 10 major points that will help you to
prevent becoming a victim of these crimes and teach you what to do if you
have been a victimized already. In 2010, 8.3 million people were victims of
identity theft and scams and more people are being targeted each year. The year
2011 saw an increase of 13%, to 11.6 million victims.
Mike Savenelli has been in the credit industry for 43 years and has an
extensive background in the area credit fraud. He has served with a number of
