Experts to speak at Del Mar event on fraud protection

There are more than 30 million victims of fraud in the United States each year. Retirees lose their life savings in fraudulent investment schemes. Online shoppers send money but receive no goods or services in return. People get taken in by confidence tricksters, fake lotteries and scam dating sites. Increasing numbers see their credit card information or whole identities stolen.

Del Mar Community Connections invites you to come and learn from deputies working in the San Diego Sheriff’s Department Financial Crimes Unit how to protect yourself from crimes involving credit card offenses, counterfeit and “bad” checks, embezzlement, false impersonation, fraud, forgery and identity theft. The presentation will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. at the City Hall Annex, 235 11th St., Del Mar.

Refreshments will be served.

This material is designed to:

Educate you on new and continuing scams

Increase awareness on ways your identity can be stolen

Reduce your risk of becoming a victim

Keep your finances and identity safe.

In keeping with the crime prevention theme, Del Mar Community Connections will be raffling off a cross-cut shredder to one lucky participant, compliments of First Republic Bank in Del Mar.

To reserve your seat, call 858-792-7565.
