October is here and with it is some of the best weather and gorgeous scenery that Michigan has to offer. October is also Cyber Security Awareness month - something we hope our constituents all take seriously. Please read about the recent cyber scams in this newsletter or on our scam source site.
I also wanted to let you know that due in part to the investment scams on the internet, your BBB has recently been awarded a grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation to deliver educational training programs on cyber and investment fraud prevention. If you would be interested in this seminar for you businesses or organizations - FREE of charge - please contact Danae Hanes at email@example.com or 248.799.0304.
One last reminder that we are once again holding our Protect Your ID shred event in conjunction with our partners, Cintas, Geep, Greenpath & Fox 2. On Saturday, October 20 from 9:00 - 12:30, you can bring your sensitive paper documents (3 bags/boxes) and electronic devices to be shredded, destroyed or recycled at no cost. Hope to see you there
Have a great month!
Melanie Duquesnel, President & CEO
