A Fighting Fraud Seminar will be held at Western Sirloin Steakhouse in Moulton on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m., and is open to the public.

The seminar,  presented by the Better Business Bureau, The Entrepreneurial Center of North Alabama (TECNA), North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments (NARCOG), and the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, is aimed to better educate participants on the latest fraud attempts and scams that threaten local businesses as well as consumers.

“This is for businesses, non-profits, and individuals,” BBB Regional Vice President Tricia Pruitt said. “We have a great panel—the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Alabama Securities Commission, and the Security Department of a local bank.”

The workshop will bring local and government experts together to discuss the ways citizens can protect their money and their investments. 

Speakers will also include representatives from the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, Investor Protection Trust, NARCOG, the BBB and Alabama SMP. 

The event is free to attend and open to the public. Lunch will be provided by the Alabama Securities Commission and Investor Protection Trust. 

“You will surely eat lunch that day, anyway, so get a free lunch from Western Sirloin and a wealth of information to keep your money safe,” Pruitt said. “We just need to know you are coming, so please call the BBB at 256-355-5170 tell us you will be attending.”

Participants may also register with TECNA by calling 256-686-2999. 

Western Sirloin Steakhouse is located at 11383 on Alabama Highway 157 in Moulton.
