Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department Senior Services will present a Thursday morning program on preventing fraud and identity theft.

The 10:30 a.m. “Fraud and Identity-Theft Prevention Presentation” will take place with U.S. Postal Inspector Erin Leipold at the Dearborn Senior Center in the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave. Leipold's second appearance at the center will teach the audience about various scams.

Talking points will be foreign lotteries and sweepstakes, free prizes and vacations, official-looking mail, ponzi schemes, charity fraud, advance fee schemes, work-at-home schemes, reshipping fraud, inheritance scams, and check scams. There will probably be handouts.

According to Ruth Gagel, Dearborn Senior Services' director of special events such as this March 20 presentation, the center is taking registrations for the event at (313) 943-2412 (but she added people can walk in Thursday morning as well).
