Fraud awareness fair is Wednesday

By From page A4 | October 09, 2012

In response to a recent surge in scams targeting older adults in Yolo County, the District Attorney’s Office will host a Yolo/Sacramento Fraud Awareness Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the West Sacramento Civic Center, 1110 West Capitol Ave.

The free event offers information about popular schemes that people are falling victim to in local communities. Reports by victims in Davis, Woodland and West Sacramento indicate that crooks continue to use phony sweepstakes scams and the “Grandma, It’s Me” telephone scam to trick people into wiring money out of the country.
