Protect Yourself from Scams and Fraud
Speaker: Carol Young
Outreach Coordinator, NCAG
Have you ever received a telephone call, email message, or letter telling you that you have won a foreign lottery or urging you to apply for a sweepstakes because you’re already a finalist? Has someone from a foreign country asked you to help get millions of dollars out of his or her country in return for a reward?
North Carolinians lose millions of dollars each year to consumer scams, including scams associated with sweepstakes, charities, identity theft and more. Carol Young, Outreach Coordinator for the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office, will join us at our general meeting on Tuesday, October 25. She will help us to become “scam smart” - to learn the facts on scams and easy tips to avoid becoming a victim.
Ms. Young has worked for various agencies of the State of North Carolina for over 32 years. From 2003-2007, and beginning again in 2013, her primary work focus has been on consumer protection awareness of scams and frauds. A highlight of her career was serving as scheduler and citizen services coordinator for Governor Purdue.
