BLAKESLEE – In his continuing effort to inform residents of the latest scams, Rep. Jack Rader (R-Monroe) is once again teaming up with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General for an identity theft seminar.  

“Identity theft continues to be one of the fastest growing crimes in the country and scammers are constantly coming up with new ways to trick us into providing our personal information,” said Rader. “This seminar is an easy way for residents to learn how to protect themselves from becoming a victim.”

The free event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 4, at 6 p.m., at the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department, 2176 Route 715 in Reeders. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. 

The seminar will be led by David Shallcross, director of the senior protection unit with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. Topics to be covered include what to do if one becomes a victim of identity theft, tips on how to protect personal information online and in everyday interactions, and guidelines on how to spot scams intended to steal one’s identity.

Reservations are required for the seminar and can be made online by visiting, or by calling one of Rader’s district offices at 570-643-7683 (Blakeslee) or 570-620-4341 (Effort).
