Vicki Johnson
Senior Deputy District Attorney
Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office
Barry Shulman introduced the program:  Santa Barbara County District Attorney, a program to provide fraud prevention, intervention, and victim support. 
The presenters from the District Attorney’s office were: Vicky Johnson, Ruth Corona, Dayton Aldrich (intern) and Angela Rico.  There is a growing problem of elder abuse.  A typical scam is a phone call where a person claims to be your granddaughter or grandson asking money be wired to get them out of a law enforcement situation.  DO NOT SEND MONEY, check with your family to make sure everything is all right.
Identity Theft - A typical scam is in a grocery store, DON’T LEAVE YOUR PURSE IN THE CART.  Thieves want your bank account number, social security number and/or Medicare number.  Reduce the items you carry in public such as extra credit cards, social security card and checkbooks.  Thieves are also going through your mail box, shred, tear into small pieces, or cut up all mail and documents that contain Social Security, bank, and credit card numbers.  When mailing checks, take to post office
The top four scams are:
  1. Someone calls from “Tech Support” saying there is a virus on your computer, hang up.
  2. I.R.S. calls – This government department does not make calls
  3. Sweepstakes & Foreign Lottery – Fake notices, illegal to play a foreign lottery.
  4. Sweetheart Scam– biggest scam. Lonely people meet someone through a false dating site; a person is ready to take advantage of your loneliness and your money.
Important fraud tips:
  1. Don’t talk to strangers
  2. Hang-up on telemarketers or ask them to call (805) 568-2442 – District Attorney’s office.
  3. Don’t apply for a credit card via the mail.
  4. Check your credit card once per year.
  5. Get a free copy of your credit report, at least once per year.
If you or know of a person that is being scammed, call the Santa Barbara County District Attorney Hotline at (805) 568-2442 and report it.
What an interesting program!
After his presentation Tim Bigelow asked the group from the District Attorney’s office to sign a children’s book for the Adams School Library.
