HARRISBURG, Jan. 9 – Nobody wants to become victim to a scam that takes away their hard-earned money.

To help people avoid those scenarios, state Rep. Jim Haddock invites residents to a Scam and Fraud Prevention Seminar, co-sponsored by the Duryea Police Department and districtwide neighborhood Crimewatch groups.

The free event starts at 6 p.m. Jan. 25 at Holy Rosary School, located at 125 Stephenson St. in Duryea. No RSVP is required to attend.

“Our guest speaker from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office will discuss some of the new ways scammers are using technology to fool people into trusting them,” said Haddock, D-Luzerne/Lackawanna. “I encourage folks to attend this free informative presentation, so they can be alert if they are contacted by scammers.”
