Have you ever or do you know someone who has been a victim of a con artist? Empower yourself to avoid falling prey to a con artist’s persuasions, manipulations, and exploitation. This seminar will address the following topics:

  • Who are con artists and where do they exist?
  • How do they identify their potential victims?
  • How do they operate and obtain your trust?
  • How do you protect yourself from becoming a victim?
  • How do you say NO to them?

The 50 and older generation of people are the preferred prey for con artists. Learn how to "Defend your heart, your soul, your psyche, and your pocketbook" (M. Stout, Ph.D.).
