Identifying and Avoiding Scams

Time: 12 p.m.
Location:
Hemlock Room
Presenter: Duncan Taylor, SVP/COO -The Washington Bankers Association &
Board member at Financial Beginnings WA

Scammers target older customers because of the size of their assets, their tendency to be more trusting, the likelihood of their being stressed by family, medical and financial problems, their concern about having enough money and their embarrassment about admitting they’ve been duped. Seniors are also more likely to be suffering from declining cognitive skills, making them even more vulnerable to fraud and manipulation. Please join Financial Beginnings Wa for this live presentation on the following topics:

  • What a scam is
  • Why scams work
  • Types of scams
  • Warning signs of scams
  • Building scam defenses
