Joining DFR and Oregon AARP at the event will be representatives from the Construction Contractors Board, Federal Trade Commission, Oregon Department of Justice, and the Aging and Disabilities Services division of the Oregon Department of Human Services. No registration is required.

Those attending will hear from experts and learn how to spot scams and gain prevention tips and tools to protect against fraud.
