VCNB Offers The Scoop On Scams

Ice cream cone with extra scoops.jpgIt seems like scams are everywhere these days. From people knocking at your front door to threatening phone calls and harassing emails, it feels like there is constantly someone looking to swindle innocent people out of their money. Sadly, millions of Americans fall prey to scams every year.

That’s why we will host “Get the Scoop on Scams,” an informational session for senior citizens later this month. Jane Nickels, the Branch Manager of our McArthur office said her staff sees great need for this kind of education in the community. “Scams are everywhere and scammers are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Sometimes it’s hard to know who to trust and, as we get older, we are more likely to be targeted. We want to prepare seniors in our community with as much knowledge as we can,” Nickels explained.

This informational session will be held at the Vinton County Senior Citizens Center at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 21. Registration is required and senior citizens may enjoy a tasty lunch for a donation to the Senior Center. Following the talk, the bank will have a free ice cream sundae bar for everyone to enjoy.

To take part, contact Rhoda at 740.596.4706 to guarantee your spot.
