The Alameda County Library, in cooperation with Legal Assistance for Seniors, is presenting “Consumer Fraud: Scams Targeting Seniors,” at the Fremont Main Library, Wednesday, June 15 at 1:30 p.m. This program will give older adults tips for prevention and protection, focusing especially on identity theft.
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.
The Federal Trade Commission estimates that as many as 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year.
Legal Assistance for Seniors serves the elderly in all of Alameda County, including: Oakland, Hayward, Berkeley, Pleasanton, Fremont, Livermore, Castro Valley, Alameda, Dublin, Emeryville, Albany, San Lorenzo, Union City, Newark. Services are free. You can contact them by phone at (510)-832-3040 or fill in their form on their website
