Eric Moss, Consumer Protection Outreach & Education Coordinator of the office of the WA Attorney General presented to us on Identity Theft. 
In 2016 his office received 12,262 complaints and 23,490 phone calls. He credits the state's work in this area to saving the consumer $2.6 million. Some of the small business scams focused on new businesses, often unexperienced business person, minority owned businesses especially with limited English speaking skills.
 
From scams to identity theft, he provided us with data and resources that will help us be even more well-informed. Thank you Eric for the information!
