Are there still scams out there?  Yes – and the scammers are getting smarter. Come listen to Suzanne McGovern from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy discuss current scams, red flags of fraud, and ways to protect your investments. Suzanne will include faith-based frauds, Covid frauds, and new “smishing”, among other topics.
