CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin is headlining an event in Charleston intended to educate elders on financial fraud aimed at older West Virginians.

Goodwin will deliver the keynote address Wednesday at the financial educational seminar organized by the AARP of West Virginia and other partners.

Organizers say Scam Jam is an effort to reduce the incidence of fraud victimizing older consumers by teaching tactics often used by scam artists. The event will offer simple steps consumers can take to reduce their risk and safeguard personal finances.
