OKLAHOMA CITY – An online fraud conference will be held on four consecutive Wednesdays in July, the Oklahoma Insurance Department announced Monday.
On July 8, 15, 22 and 29, at 10 a.m., the Hoodwinked Fraud Conference will offer various fraud-related webinar series, from Medicare and healthcare fraud to relationship scams such as elder abuse/neglect and exploitation, cyber scams, investment, banking and securities fraud.
The Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) is partnering with the Oklahoma Department of Securities, the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, the Oklahoma Bankers Association and AARP Oklahoma to host the “Hoodwinked Fraud Conference” virtually.
The conference will educate Oklahomans on the latest white-collar crimes and provide tips for staying safe. This virtual event will consist of four total educational sessions led by speakers with diverse areas of expertise, such as state agency directors, law enforcement professionals and individuals from the fraud prevention fields.
“In this unprecedented time when fraudsters are taking advantage of fear and uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we are looking to bring our community together and offer sessions that will help Oklahomans protect themselves and their loved ones with new skills, understanding and knowledge,” said state Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready.
Registration for the event is free and open online at www.oid.ok.gov. Speaker information and updates about the conference can be found at https://www.oid.ok.gov/consumers/events/hoodwinked/.
