The Orange County Department on Aging invites the public to learn how to avoid becoming a victim of investment fraud by attending the “Investment Fraud: Guarding Your Assets in a Scary World” seminar on Oct. 4.
Don't think you can become a victim of investment fraud? Neither did the nearly 600 people who trusted J.V. Huffman, Jr., of Conover, NC, or the 100 people who trusted Sid Hanson, of Charlotte, NC, with approximately $25 million and $30 million (respectively) of their money!
John Maron, Director of the Investor Protection and Education Services Division of the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State, will share how to recognize and avoid possible investment scams. You will also learn how to spot the red flags of potential investment fraud, how to do your due diligence, and the questions to ask your investment professional. Finally, discover what to do if you become a victim of an investment scam.
Information will also be presented on how you can register your advance health care directives with the Secretary of State’s office so that you or your caregiver can access them at anytime from anywhere in the world.
The program will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 1-2 p.m. at the Passmore Center located at 103 Meadowlands Drive in Hillsborough.
The program is free; however, participants must register by Monday, Oct. 1.
