Are you worried about sharing private information when you shop or pay your bills online? Have you had a phone call telling you that you need to pay your tax debt now or you’ll be arrested? A free talk at the Lithgow Library during Law Week may just help you avoid the scammers.

Scammers are people keen to get their hands on our money and our identity details. This presentation by a Legal Aid NSW lawyer outlines common scams. It will help you identify online scams, door to door scams, and scammers who contact you on the telephone. It will give you some practical tips on protecting yourself and give you information about how to report scams to authorities, how to protect your identity and how the law can help if you get scammed.

“With scams becoming an increasing problem, this presentation by Legal Aid is a great opportunity for you to become better informed on your legal rights. I encourage everyone to come along,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

The free talk will take place at Lithgow Library on Wednesday 15 May 2019 from 11:00am to 12:00pm. Light refreshments will be served prior to the talk at 10.30am. Bookings are essential for this event and can be made by contacting the library on 6352 9100.
