CUB and fraud prevention clinic planned

PRINCETON — State Sen. Darin LaHood (R-Dunlap) and state Rep. Don Moffitt (R-Gilson) will host a free Citizens Utility Board (CUB) and senior fraud prevention clinic from 9 to 11 a.m. Aug. 8 at the Prouty Building in Princeton.

All interested senior citizens in the Princeton area are invited to attend for information fraud prevention strategies and ways to save money on phone, electric and gas bills. CUB staffers will need seniors to bring copies of their phone and utility bills to analyze for money-saving tips. 

Free refreshments and door prizes will be provided.

The Attorney General’s Office will be on hand to speak about common consumer scams targeting senior citizens such as Internet lotteries and mail fraud. The Treasurer’s I-Cash computer will be on site to allow seniors to search for unclaimed property.

For more information about the event, contact LaHood’s office at 309-693-4921.
