Those in attendance will learn from experts on how to spot scams and gain prevention tips and tools to protect against fraud.

Scam Jam will be held Friday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Rogue Valley Country Club, located at 2660 Hillcrest Road in Medford.

Breakfast will be provided and pre-registration is encouraged. People can register for the event online at https://events.aarp.org/SOScamJam or call 1-877-926-8300.

“We have a great lineup up speakers to help educate Oregonians on what to look for regarding fraud and scam prevention,” said TK Keen, DFR administrator. “Scams are getting more sophisticated and harder to decipher so the more aware the public is, the better everyone is.”
