Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson will be at the Elkhart Public Library for a variation of the game BINGO to educate the public about securities and investment fraud.
The session begins at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, July 31 at the downtown branch of EPL.
According to a press release, the game is designed to educate citizens about avoiding scams and fraudsters. The event is free and will include prizes and refreshments.
“Research shows that Americans lose $40 billion a year to investment fraud,” said Lawson. “Our goal is to give Hoosiers the tools they need to avoid falling prey to scammers and fraudsters. Bringing our MoneyWise BINGO tour to communities around the state helps us spread the word in a fun way to citizens of all ages.”
