On March 22nd, Londonderry on the Tred Avon hosted the Maryland State Police for a presentation about identity theft. The event was attended by nearly 70 residents who participated in a lively discussion about how to prevent and respond to cases of fraud.
The presentation and discussion were led by Sgt. Anthony London and Trooper First Class Charles Cummings of the Maryland State Police’s Criminal Enforcement Division, Computer Crimes Unit. Both are based at the Easton Barrack and specialize in computer crimes such as identity theft and crimes against children. They highlighted scams and other tactics criminals will use to steal personal and financial information, and also recommended resources for reporting identity fraud and sharing tips with the Maryland State Police.
“There is a reason why every seat was filled at this event,” said Irma Toce, Londonderry CEO. “While identity theft is a crime that affects all ages, seniors can be especially vulnerable. Thank you to the Maryland State Police for raising awareness of this crime and providing our residents with the information and resources they need not to become victims.”
