Best Friends wants to educate its participants about how to avoid spoofs, scams, and swindles. Marion Waelchli of Alliance for Consumer Protection in Beaver County was a featured guest speaker on a three part series of discussions concerning scams, financial resources, and money management. The best way to avoid a scam is to have knowledge to protect yourself before tragedy strikes.
From our guest speaker participants learned how to recognize phone and Internet scammers and how to avoid being conned. We discussed how to report scammers so no one else falls for their money traps and how to beat scammers at their own game. Participants also discussed how to protect their money, especially in today’s world of credit and debit cards. We all want to keep our hard earned money safe! Be educated and know how to avoid scams and frauds.
