HARRISBURG – As the holiday season approaches, state Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder) wants to help constituents prepare and be aware of attempted scams and deceptive advertising which may occur while shopping at stores or online this year.

“Gift giving is a big part of the holidays, as are scams that criminals attempt to pull off on unsuspecting individuals,” said Culver. “I’m hoping we can offer some tips and warning signs to prevent people from becoming victims.”

On Thursday, Nov. 17, Culver and the Office of the Attorney General will co-host a holiday scam prevention presentation at 6 p.m. in the Susquehanna Valley Mall’s community room.

“If you or someone you know has ever been scammed and/or had their identity stolen, you’re well aware of how disruptive this crime is and how exhaustive resolving it can be,” Culver added.

While pre-registration is not required, anyone interested in attending this free event is encouraged to contact the office to RSVP by calling 1-570-286-5885, or toll-free at 1-800-924-9060.
