Protect Yourself Against Scams

Scams targeting the elderly have been increasing in recent years. Not only can they have a huge financial impact on the person scammed, they can also have a huge physical and emotional impact and lead to a diminished quality of life and the loss of independence.

  • Do you know how to recognize a likely scam attempt?
  • Do you know what to do if you or someone you care for has been scammed?
  • Do you know what scams are particularly prevalent in the area?

These questions will be tackled in the informational panel discussion led by the Vernon County Sheriff’s Department and hosted by Knutson Memorial Library on August 13th at 10:30 AM. The panel will consist of representatives from the sheriff’s department, a local CPA firm, a local bank, and an attorney, as well as our local Coon Valley policeman, Chief Welch.

Please call Knutson Memorial Library (452-3757) or email Karen ( to register for this “hot topic” program. Coffee and cookies will be served.
