-A A +A

The risks for identity theft are everywhere. Mail, computers, credit cards, even trash all present opportunities for criminals to gain access to personal information. To prevent identity theft, people must constantly be aware of the ways that criminals use to gain access to personal, identifying information.
The Los Alamos Council of the Extension Association of New Mexico in conjunction with the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization are sponsoring a program on learning how to recognize the most common scams and how to protect identity.  
Sgt. Federico Rascón, from the Los Alamos Police Department, Crime Prevention Division will address this issue. The program is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the White Rock Senior Center.  The program is free and open to the public.  For more information call 662-2656.
