The Sequim Senior Activity Center’s “Conversations with ... ” discussion series will feature Darryl Elmore, the Head of Walmart Asset Protection, at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Elmore and associates will speak about ways to avoid being taken by lottery scams, money wire fraud, and other common ploys used by criminals.
A recent victim of a scam will tell the story of how she was almost scammed out of more than $1,000.
“Many people are too trusting of a voice on the phone and send money to who they think is a grandchild or other relative in trouble, but it can end up being fraudulent," said Michael Smith, Executive Director at Sequim Senior Activity Center.
The event is free to SSAC members, with a suggested donation of $2 for non members.
“Conversations with ... ” is a discussion series that features local experts speaking about topics of importance to seniors and the community.
