Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law will warn elderly citizens about the dangers of scams and fraud at free consumer protection presentations in Ocala in March.

Stetson Law Professor Nick Cox will speak about identity theft March 29-30 at two sessions: 10 a.m.- 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.-4 p.m., at the Ocala Hilton, 3600 SW 36th Ave.

With experience in both the Office of the Florida Attorney General and the State Attorney’s Office, Cox has worked closely with state and federal agencies to educate citizens and law enforcement personnel on consumer fraud issues.

“Identity theft has a devastating impact on its victims,” said Rebecca Morgan, Boston Asset Management Faculty Chair in Elder Law and director of Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Elder Law. “Too often seniors are targeted as victims of identity theft. It is critical for everyone to learn more about identity theft and how to protect their identities.”

The seminars are part of Stetson’s elder consumer protection initiatives.
