Topic: The Psychology Behind ID Theft, Fraud and other Scams discusses what triggers the emotional state—the “ether zone”-- that prevents us from making rational, common sense decisions when confronted with a scam. Also discussed are ways by which you can recognize and avoid scams that once in this emotional state, may lead to making impulsive decisions. Information on the latest, most popular scams will be presented, as well as ways to combat them, including practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your family. Finally, the attendees will be provided with useful resources, as well as common strategies to fight off frauds and scams.
