The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community hosts representatives of MountainOne Bank who will present with a Community Task Force on the theme "Elder Scam and Fraud Prevention."
Financial scams and fraud are on the rise every day. Unfortunately, elders can be particularly vulnerable to this type of exploitation. This program will assist elders in identifying, avoiding, and preventing various types of financial scams and fraud.
MountainOne provides financial education programs through their Community Engagement program. They have expertise in basic banking, budgeting, saving, and fraud prevention.
This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
