Consumer Protection Workshop Success Story

Friday, July 13, 2018

A client attending Homebuyer Education recently shared with the instructor that she had just attended the Financial Capabilities workshop marathon in Traverse City in June and thanks to what she learned, she was able to protect herself from being a victim of identity theft. She was alerted that someone had charged approximately $300.00 on one of her accounts. The client said normally she wouldn't have any idea what to do but thanks to the training received at the workshop she filed a police report, filled out a fraud packet and sent all required documentation proving the bill was not hers. By following all the steps learned, she was able to protect herself from further attempts to gain access to her accounts.  For further upcoming workshops please view the Calendar.
