OLYMPIA…Consumer Protection Washington, a group of consumer protection outreach specialists from several state and federal agencies and organizations, including the Office of Secretary of State’s Charities Program, is presenting a consumer protection event Oct. 10 in Klipsan Beach.
The event, which runs from 1 to 4 p.m., will be at the Peninsula Senior Activity Center, 21603 “O” Lane, Klipsan Beach.
The free event, sponsored by the South Pacific County Community Foundation, will include presentations and resources on charity scams, identity theft, senior-targeted scams, Medicaid fraud, utilities fraud and other topics.

When SPCCF first heard about the multi-agency Fraud Fair, the board immediately agreed that this is something our community needs. We hope that you can attend, part if not all, and come away with new information to help you live more secure lives.
