Scams against Seniors: Ohio Attorney General Presentation for The Athens Village
June 22, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Athens Village will welcome a consumer educator from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Office* for its June meeting. Ryan Lippe from the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section will give a presentation about senior scams.
Seniors (age 60 and up) are particularly vulnerable to fraud and scams; however, many incidents likely go unreported. During Ryan’s presentation, attendees will learn about the latest scams targeting our senior population, and find out how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
As a consumer educator, Ryan conducts presentations to groups across the state to teach Ohioans about their rights and how to avoid scams. Ryan also prepares educational materials to advance the Consumer Protection Section’s mission of protecting Ohioans from unfair and deceptive business practices and consumer fraud. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications, summa cum laude, from Ohio University.
Consumers who suspect a scam or unfair business practice should contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office by calling 800-282-0515 or visiting www.OhioProtects.org.
