    Financial Literacy: Identifying & Avoiding Scams at the Somers Library

    Somers Library

    Financial Literacy: Identifying & Avoiding Scams at the Somers Library
    Thursday, June 27, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

    Scammers target bank customers, especially the elderly, because of the size of their assets, their tendency to be more trusting or the likelihood of their being stressed by family, medical and financial problems. Seniors especially can be targeted because they are more likely to be suffering from declining cognitive skills, making them more vulnerable to fraud and manipulation. This program, presented by Therese-Maureen LaMarche and created by the American Bankers Association, will offer valuable information to help identify and avoid being scammed.


    This presentation will help participants:

    • Understand the nature of scams and recognize the warning signs
    • Take appropriate action if they become the victim of fraud
    • Build protective barriers against scams
    • Appreciate the role that banks can play in helping them to avoid and deal with financial fraud and exploitation

    Registration is required; please register online here or call 914-232-5717.

    Presenter: Therese-Maureen LaMarche is a banker at Somers S&S Branch of People's United Bank. For more than 175 years, People's United Bank has been an active member of the communities where we live and work, and a strong philanthropic partner committed to investing time and money to meet the needs of individuals, families, businesses, and entire communities. We take the responsibility to be good neighbors seriously, and are committed to our legacy of giving back to the communities.
