[ARCHIVED] Identity Theft Training At Senior Center

Amherst Police Officer Jamie Reardon will be discussing ways to NOT become a victim of Identity Theft
Amherst Chief of Police Scott P. Livingstone is pleased to announce a community event designed to educate our seniors on Identity Theft and Credit Card Fraud.
Identity Theft is a crime in which someone obtains the personal or financial information of another person for the purpose of assuming that person’s name or identity in order to make fraudulent transactions or purchases.
Credit Card Fraud is the theft or fraud committed using a credit card or any similar payment mechanism as a fraudulent source of funds in a transaction with the sole purpose to obtain goods without paying, or obtaining unauthorized funds from an account.
On Monday December 13, 2010, the Amherst S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) in partnership with the Amherst Senior Center and the Amherst Police Department will be hosting an event to educate seniors on how to prevent and combat identity theft and credit card fraud. The Amherst Police Department hopes that through education and information, we can deter these crimes from happening. This event will be held in the Amherst Senior Center from 1:30 3:30 p.m.
This event is free and pre-registration is not required. If you need additional information please contact Officer Jamie Reardon at 413-259-3000 or via email at
