A Scam Jam-Packed Event
Why Host a Scam Jam
Hosting a Scam Jam shows your organization’s or company’s commitment to the community by proactively leading the fight against fraud. It’s an event focused on informing participants about the latest scams and how to protect themselves from becoming victimized by a con artist. It often includes vendor booths hosted by state and local agencies as well as security-minded businesses, breakout workshops, video reports of investigations by local television personalities, and panel discussions featuring law enforcement personnel.
How a Scam Jam Works
Chuck Whitlock’s in-depth knowledge of cons and con artists lays the foundation for the Scam Jam. With his involvement in past events as a keynote speaker and workshop leader, Chuck knows how to get community leaders, local authorities, members of the news media and others involved. Such broad-based support makes for an informative, entertaining, and empowering event—whether it is ‘jam-packed’ into a half-day or expanded into an all-day experience.

“WOW! YOU REALLY RANG THE BELL last week at our Senior Celebration & Consumer Expo!
