Protect Your Identity and Avoid Scams
On Friday, May 17 at 11 a.m., the Milford Town Library is proud to host Milford Federal Bank for this special event, Protect Your Identity and Avoid Scams! Susan Carabbio, VP Retail Market Manager, will be offering some expert advice. No registration is required, and all are welcome.
New scams are being created every day in order to try and steal your hard-earned money, and your identity. And they are becoming more and more tricky to recognize. Thankfully, forewarned is forearmed! In this presentation we will be reviewing common types of fraud and financial exploitation, and who is at risk. You'll learn how to understand the warning signs in order to prevent and minimize exploitation, and how to find resources in order to make better-informed decisions. We'll cover topics ranging from charity and Internet scams, to investment fraud. Perhaps most importantly, we'll also discuss identity theft, offering tips on how you can protect yourself.

Lipman, author of The Inn at Lake Devine, On Turpentine Lane, Good Riddance, among other novels, is known for her witty and wry takes on relationships and the absurdities of modern life. 
In Ms. Demeanor, Lipman’s heroine Jane Morgan is on house arrest in her New York apartment for six months after being discovered having sex on a rooftop terrace with another lawyer in her firm. Rather than feeling shame, Jane makes the most of the time now available to her to make new friends in her building, start a catering business and embark on a romantic relationship with another ankle bracelet wearer. If you’re looking for an assuming break from the news, this is the book for you.
