Program:  Protect Yourself Against Identity Theft and Fraud
Detective Stephen Desmond of the Longmont Police Department provided us with a wealth of information about How to Protect Against Identity Theft and Fraud.  He named several groups responsible for the problem here in Longmont:  Asian and Russian mafia, Nigerian, Canadian, & East European scammers, as well as local meth addicts.  He warned against counterfeit checks (which can bounce back up to a year after transaction), deals that sound “too good to be true,” phone and internet scams such as fake Lotteries, telemarketing,  the Grandparent Scam, Online dating and Phishing.  Because scammers have gotten quite sophisticated, DO NOT be fooled by an email with your bank’s logo, especially if you notice grammar and spelling mistakes in the text.  Watch out for fake ATM’s, skimmers on gas pumps, etc.  In general, credit cards are safer than debit cards, and the ones with a chip are best.
Beware also of Roofing, Tree Trimming and Paving Companies that solicit business door-to-door.  Check Better Business Bureau and get references for this type of service.  Mail checks from a secure drop box or the post office.  The raised flag on a home mailbox is a signal for people who want to steal.  Checks can be laundered and changed, unless you use a gel pen.
Noting that almost everyone will be a victim sooner or later, Stephen gave us some general suggestions to minimize the risk:
  • Check your credit card and bank statements regularly
  • Photocopy your credit cards, expensive items, electronics, bikes and serial numbers
  • Shred sensitive documents
  • Use one credit card for all online purchases
  • Don’t open emails from people you don’t know
  • HANG UP on telemarketers or anyone that seems to be a con artist
  • Have a separate email address for junk mail
  • Register on the Do Not Call list

President's Message

Hello All,

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to serve as the president of the Rotary club of Longmont for the 2021–2022 Rotary year.

The upcoming year will be one of continuing change as we start the process of returning to the “new normal“ of in-person meetings. The process is going to be a "crawl, walk, run" and I hope everyone will be patient. 
The theme of this rotary year is "Serve to change lives".  It will be wonderful to be able to come up with projects to follow this theme and continue to serve our community locally nationally and internationally.
While we will not be able to have in person RYLA again this year, there will be a one day virtual session. With school being in person, I am looking forward to the Young Rotarian‘s being able to start up again in the fall. Our youth are the future of rotary!
My goal this year is to grow our club by a few members and for everyone to think of younger people in the community who would make great Rotarians.
I look forward to a terrific year.
Yours in Rotary,
Debby Paris
