Cybersecurity & Fraud Awareness: Recognize. React. Defend.
Learn how to protect yourself and loved ones from devastating elder and financial fraud.
In 2022, U.S. citizens over the age of 60 lost a reported $3.1 billion to fraud, according to the FBI’s Elder Fraud Report (2022). This was up 84% from 2021, with further expected increases in years to come. Alarmingly, Texas ranks third in the nation for states with the highest amount of financial fraud against individuals over 60. Scams, whether by phone, text, email or in person, continue to become more sophisticated, and it is imperative to learn where to turn for support.
Angelo State has teamed up with First Financial Bank, the CyberTexas Foundation and the Concho Valley Technology Alliance to provide greater awareness of the financial fraud occurring in our region.
Join us for breakfast and coffee as experts facilitate conversations on how to protect yourself and others from financial fraud. Additionally, hear from a panel of individuals with direct experience with elder and financial fraud who share their testimony in the hopes it never happens to others.
Attendees will have opportunities to submit questions and seek support from banking, law enforcement and cybersecurity professionals.
