Every day, people of all ages fall victim to financial scams. They are victims because scammers are good at what they do. By using high pressure scare tactics and playing on people’s emotions, they get what they want. The Phoenixville Public Library will host a free in-person “Fraud Prevention Presentation” on Monday, June 20 at 7 p.m. Chuck Benz Sr. Vice President and Security Officer of Phoenixville Federal Bank & Trust will be the speaker. As a security guard at the Phoenixville Community Bank, Chuck Benz saw and often prevented these types of frauds. He’ll discuss some of the most common scams he sees right here in Phoenixville, and most importantly, how you can avoid them. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required at https://ccls.libcal.com/calendar/Phoenixville/fraud-prevention or by calling 610-933-3013 x132.
