“Outsmarting Con Artists” – presented by AARP

In its ongoing efforts to fight fraud, AARP Montana is partnering with a coalition of crime prevention agencies to sponsor “how-to” workshops entitled “Outsmarting Con Artists” with a special focus on keeping sharp. The 2016 series of workshops will be held in Butte, Missoula and Havre.

“AARP surveys reveal the top two key concerns among Montana members are keeping their brains agile and avoiding financial exploitation,” said Tim Summers, AARP Montana State Director. “This is why we are sponsoring the Outsmarting Con Artist workshops. We are bringing these two important topics together into one informative presentation delivered by the experts in the field.”

AARP will present the forums together with a host of experts, including the Office of Consumer Protection under the Montana Attorney General’s Office, the Office of the Commissioner of Securities and Insurance, the Montana Division of Banking and Financial Institutions and the Montana Crime Prevention Association.

The 2016 consumer protection workshops will focus on educating attendees about fraud and scams that frequently target boomers and older Montanans. Topics covered will include investment fraud, fake insurance, Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, identity theft, internet scams, health care fraud and telemarketing fraud.


 

“Information is a consumer’s best defense against becoming a victim. This fraud forum is a great opportunity for folks to learn about their rights as consumers, have their questions answered by experts in the field, and learn strategies that will help them overcome these challenges.”


The AARP “How-to” workshop is free and open to the public and includes complimentary lunch and materials. Due to limited seating, an RSVP is kindly requested. Please call toll free at 1-877-926-8300 or log onto www.aarp.org/MT for registration link and details.

A Place at the Table – Looking at hunger in the United States

Montana Wild presents A Place at the Table, Monday, April 25 at 5:30 PM.


50 Million Americans – 1 in 4 children – don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about being hungry, A Place at the Table shows how this issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides – as they have in the past – that ending hunger is in the best interest of us all.

This special no-cost film screening is a part of the 2016 Food for Thought Film Series at Montana Wild in Helena, MT. Food for this event is sponsored by Bert & Ernie’s.
