Representative Barbara Wheeler to Participate in Consumer Fraud and Identity Theft Event

State Representative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) will join Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan for a Consumer Fraud and Identity Theft Roundtable in Crystal Lake on Wednesday, October 8.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 10:30AM until noon at Park Place Banquets, 406 W. Woodstock Street in Crystal Lake. At the forum, Madigan will update community leaders on security breaches, identity theft and common financial scams directed at consumers in Crystal Lake and the surrounding area.
“Consumer fraud is a growing problem that can have devastating consequences for people,” said Wheeler. “I’m pleased to be participating in this roundtable event and encourage people from this area to attend so they can learn how to best protect themselves from these scams.”
