How to Detect and Avoid Internet Scams and Identity Theft
One Zoom Session
Mon., Nov. 11, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm MT

Americans lost $12.5 billion to all kinds of internet scams in 2023. What’s more, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center receives an average of more than 4,000 complaints per day. You can easily avoid most scams with the right information. Join high-tech expert Scott Henke as he walks you through what you need to know in easy-to-understand language. “You will get helpful information in layman’s terms that can greatly reduce life-altering identity theft and financial loss from happening to you and your family” Henke says. The average loss is $1,400 per person and in hindsight easily avoidable. First, hear about the different kinds of tricks these con artists employ and how you can be scammed from a website, spyware, virus, an email or phone call from someone pretending to be a loved one. Then examine specific steps such as locking down your online accounts, securing your home Wi-Fi, protecting your computer and phone, and recognizing attempts to steal your personal information. “I work to make my classes highly informative and practical,” Henke says. “Plus, I email you the class handouts ahead of time so you can take notes on the syllabus as we go.”

Scott Henke is the owner of Onsite Consulting, an award-winning company that’s been helping people with their tech issues since 1982. Henke says his company helps an average of two people a day recover from hackers and identity theft. Henke has been teaching classes since 1994, bringing humor and insight to the complex.
