Fraud forum April 9

Representatives from the Ohio attorney general’s office plan to host a community fraud forum aimed to protect families from financial predators 1-5 p.m. April 9 in Osceola Theatre at Tiffin University.

“Scammers are clever and very intelligent when it comes to stealing your money,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. “We hope this fraud forum, along with others we have held across Ohio, will educate people about consumer, health care and charitable fraud, so they won’t be victims.”

The forum is to cover issues such as financial fraud, nursing home theft, charitable cons and consumer scams, particularly those that target the elderly. Law enforcement officials also can learn how DeWine’s office can assist in investigating and prosecuting consumer fraud cases.

One hour of continuing education credit is available for social workers.

To attend, RSVP by April 4 by calling the attorney general’s office at (800) 282-0515 or online at
