Visit Denver Libraries for Free Financial Resources

Posted by NWilberg-Ricks /
Colorado Registration Agencies

Beginning the week of April 3 in Denver, Colorado, library-goers can participate in a series of CFTC co-sponsored events to learn how to better protect their investments. The CFTC SmartCheckSM campaign in partnership with the Division of Securities, part of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), will host free events at Denver libraries to provide tools to help investors avoid financial fraud and enhance financial security.



On average, 4.2 million people walk into a library every day. You could be one of them. Attending one of the briefings will provide you with an opportunity to learn fraud prevention skills through CFTC interactive videos and more. Learn about the “$ecure Colorado” program, which aims to educate seniors about how to protect themselves against fraud, and to inform adult children and caretakers about possible warning signs of financial fraud and exploitation in older adults.



The Public Library Association 2016 Conference will also take place next week. It is the largest gathering of more than 8,000 public library professionals in the country and occurs only once every two years. If you’re a registered guest, visit the CFTC and DORA co-sponsored booth 1902 to gain greater access to print and electronic resources on financial fraud. See you in Denver!
