WEST LAFAYETTE –– Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union invites the Greater Lafayette community to attend a free “Computer Fraud and Financial Crimes” workshop at 6 p.m., on Thursday, March 5, at the Purdue Technology Center located at 3000 Kent Avenue in the Purdue Research Park. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m.
Technology provides convenience and entertainment, but it also creates new ways for crooks to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. According to the United States Secret Service, there is a considerable increase in financial crimes being carried out with computers.
The scams include using computers as devices to “hack” into databases, cloning microchips, scanning corporate checks and much more. Attend this workshop to learn ways to prevent computer predators from accessing your financial information.
The workshop is free and open to the general public. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited. Reserve your space by Wednesday, March 4, by calling 765.497.7455, e-mailing email@example.com, or registering online at www.purdueefcu.com under “Events Calendar”.
