Public is invited to learn cyberscam protection strategies

As part of its ongoing identity theft prevention program, LAFCU is offering a free Fraud Awareness Seminar, Wednesday, Aug. 23, 6-7:30 p.m., at its West Lansing branch, 106 N. Marketplace Blvd., Lansing. The event is open to the public; registration is required.

“Identity theft and fraud are very real threats today,” said Patrick Spyke, LAFCU CEO. “More than 15 million Americans were impacted by these crimes in 2016, and we want to do our part to help people in our community protect themselves. Consumers familiar with the signs of fraud tend to spot it more quickly and can minimize the financial damage.”

Seminar speakers include Detective Aaron Roberts with the Eaton County Sheriff's Office, the credit union’s cybersecurity and loss prevention staffs, and a LAFCU employee who was a victim of identity theft.

Information provided will cover online-fraud-protection best practices, red flags that may signal a scam, and identity and management monitoring software and services, including CyberScout®, the fraud monitoring service that LAFCU offers to members to help them minimize exposure to cyberfraud, monitor their personal information, and manage any damage to their identity, privacy and security.

Registration is via email,, or online from the “Events & Seminars” page of
