Scam fighting – 2010

As 2009 comes to a close and we enter into 2010 I wanted to share the New Year’s Resolution that we have at Scam Victims United . . . to bring scam education and awareness to people across the country.

One of the ways that we plan to do this is with events called Scam Jam. These events are the brainchild of Chuck Whitlock an investigative reporter, author and speaker. If you have ever been to a Home and Garden Show or Wedding Expo, imagine that same experience and setting focusing on scams and fraud. There are presentations, workshops and speakers on various topics such as

ID Theft
Internet Scams
Investment Fraud
Health Care Scams
Bank Fraud
Elder Fraud
Charity Scams
Mortgage Fraud
Phishing Scams
Credit Card and Check Schemes
Contractor Fraud
Food/Supplement Fraud
Mail Fraud

Presenters include local media personalities sharing their best investigative reporting stories that expose scams, law enforcement groups, lawyers and legal experts, and even former scam victims sharing their story of victimization to recovery. Beyond the workshops and presentations, people attending a Scam Jam can interact with Consumer Protection groups in the Exhibitors Room. These professionals can assist them with their scam and fraud related questions, and offer then resources to assist them recovery efforts. You may even be able to purchase one of Chuck Whitlock’s investigative books that exposes scams or books by other presenters.

Scam Jam is a one stop shop for education and resources on scams, fraud and consumer protection.

We are currently scheduling dates for Scam Jam events for 2010. If your school, business or company would like to host a Scam Jam at your facility, or if you are a professional in the area of scam fighting and consumer protection that would like to be a part of a Scam Jam in your area, please contact us.

ATM Scam

This is one of the videos that Chuck Whitlock showed at Scam Jam over the weekend.  This shows how people are willing to trust a man in a security uniform with their bank account information.

Scam Jam

I am home from Scam Jam in Portland Oregon. Even though the weather did not cooperate with us, I think that a lot of people received a lot of great information and learned something about how to protect themselves from scams and fraud.

There is a great article about the event here http://www.kgw.com/business/stories/kgw_101609_con_scam_jam.222e84c6a.html

There were reporters from the local television stations that all shared an investigative reporting or consumer protection segment that they have done. There were workshops all day on the top local scams, Identity Theft, protecting your data, senior fraud, mortgage fraud and more.
