Whether it’s called a scam, con, fraud or theft, people taking advantage of others financially continues to be a major problem. K-State Research and Extension agent for the Southwind District, Barbara Stockebrand, says it can happen anytime to anyone and that technology has opened the door for people with bad intentions to steal your identity or coax you into a scam simply by gathering personal information from an email or financial transaction. Stockebrand and Janae McNally, an adult development and aging specialist with the Frontier Extension District, are hosting an upcoming Living Well Wednesday webinar on steps consumers can take to avoid identity thefts and scams.
Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
