Scams are everywhere these days; from your inbox to your front door.
With that in mind, and as part of Consumer Protection Week, the Summit County Office of Consumer Affairs is holding a "How to Spot and Stop a Scam" seminar on Tuesday, March 6th, from 11 a.m. to noon, at the Shaw JCC of Akron, at 750 White Pond Drive.
The free seminar will teach Summit County residents ways to protect themselves, and their families, from common scams that continue to make the rounds in and around Akron. "(We'll) highlight certain consumer-related scams that have been going on in the area, and common sense ways to avoid such scams," said Chris Verich, Deputy Director of the Summit County Office of Consumer Affairs.
Anyone is welcome, and Verich urges those planning on attending can RSVP at consumeraffairs.summitoh.net.
