Money Smart Kimball is a group working with the library that has decided to continue providing financial information to the community.  Identity theft and scams are a big concern and …   It seems we need to watch out for everything.  Be alert.  Even insurance scams are out there.  Rule  #1-Never, Never give out personal information including SS#, bank account numbers, passwords, etc. over the phone to anyone.  The people who you can trust at the banks, SS office, etc. already have the information and will not ask you for it.

“It’s a hard, cold fact: fraudsters lie. That’s how they attempt to make money. They lie when they promise you “guaranteed” high returns with little or no risk. And they lie when they forget to mention that the company or product they’re touting doesn’t exist.”  http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/fakeseals.htm
