State Rep. Mary Whiteford has scheduled a consumer education event in partnership with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office to educate residents on identity theft.

The forum will feature information on protection against identity theft and what steps to take in the event you become a victim of this crime.

“As technology continues to become more and more prevalent in our lives, it’s important we provide the tools and knowledge people need to protect themselves and their personal information,” Whiteford said. “This forum will give people in the community a crash course on how to protect their information.”

The event starts at 11 a.m. Friday, May 11 at the Perrigo Wellness Center, 490 Eastern Ave. in Allegan. There is no charge to attend.  Please RSVP to Rep. Whiteford’s office by Friday, May 4.
