      Central Square Branch, 45 Pearl St., Cambridge, MA 02139

      Managing one’s own money in today’s world is tricky. The best way to protect ourselves from fraud is to learn exactly how it takes place and share this information with others. Scam artist prey upon victims by earning their trust, by taking advantage of their greed, and by using scare tactics.

By learning and applying the concepts from these interactive workshops, participants will better understand and practice managing their money wisely, begin to build savings, avoid unmanageable debt, improve their credit and shield themselves from fraud. Through an interactive game, “Red Flag Alert!” we see scams acted out and learn the safest way to respond to these threats. This workshop is part of four workshops in collaboration with Cambridge Savings Bank. By learning and applying the concepts from these interactive workshops, participants will better understand and practice managing their money wisely, begin to build savings, avoid unmanageable debt, improve their credit and shield themselves from fraud.
