– In his continuing effort to reduce the number of identity theft victims in the 176th Legislative District, Rep Jack Rader (R-Monroe) is teaming up with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General to co-host a seminar on Thursday, June 16.
The free event will take place from 5-7 p.m. at the Jackson Township Fire Hall, 2162 Route 715 in Reeders
“Identity theft continues to be one of the fastest growing crimes in the country, with nearly 1.4 million cases reported to the Federal Trade Commission last year,” said Rader. “Our seminar will provide information on the latest scams and how to avoid them.”
The seminar will be led by Dave Shallcross, director of senior protection with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General.
