Preventing Identity Theft

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

6:30 pm at Broadmoor Arts & Wellness Center (3900 General Taylor)

As the fifth event in JLNO’s Financial Literacy program, this workshop is designed to provide:

  • Facts about identity theft
  • Tips for preventing identity theft
  • Steps to take if they become victims

Identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in America, with as many as 9 million people falling victim each year. Many, however, seem oblivious to the threat that identity theft poses and generously share passwords, personal identification number (PIN) information, driver’s licenses, and other information.

This event is free and open to the public, and registration via this link is requested.

Financial Literacy is a powerful tool to achieving and maintaining economic freedom, and it is often not taught in a traditional educational setting. Those without access to this knowledge are susceptible to debt and poverty. With information about developing a household budget, creating an emergency savings account, and purchasing a first home, financial literacy can be the tool that transforms women’s lives.

To increase financial literacy and in alignment with our focus on Advancing the Wellbeing of Women, JLNO has developed a Financial Literacy for Women curriculum which focuses on the five key financial topics of banking, borrowing, budgeting, saving, and investing. All events in this program are free and open to the public.
