TOWANDA – In an effort to raise public awareness about financial fraud, Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) is joining with the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities to host two upcoming events in the 110th Legislative District.

“Fraud Bingo” is a fun and interactive presentation that teaches consumers how to protect themselves from investment scams and other schemes that rob billions of dollars from hard-working families and senior citizens.

“I am pleased to co-host these free events with the Department of Banking and Securities, which will have a representative on hand to lead the discussion,” said Pickett. “Local residents of all ages are encouraged to attend and learn how to not fall victim to one of these scammers by playing a familiar game – bingo!”

The locations and dates of the events are as follows:

• Thursday, Sept. 23, 10-11 a.m. – Sons and Daughters of Italy, 301 Desmond St. in Sayre.
• Thursday, Sept. 23, 1-2 p.m. – Dushore Fire Company, 212 Julia St. in Dushore.

Reservations are encouraged. Please visit, under the “Resources” tab, to register, or call Pickett’s district office in Towanda at 570-265-3124.
