(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the next regional community fraud forum his office is hosting this summer is in Toledo on Aug. 16. The free forum is open to anyone and features special workshops for law enforcement, social workers and other caretakers. Discussion will focus on recent consumer and charitable scams affecting Ohioans, along with patient and Medicaid abuse.
"By reaching out across the state with these regional fraud forums, we continue to bolster our collaborative efforts to protect Ohio’s families," Attorney General DeWine said.
The Toledo area forum will be at the Toledo Main Library-McMaster Center, 325 N. Michigan St., from 1 to 4 p.m. It will include a moderated panel discussion for all attendees, followed by the special workshops. Continuing education credit is available for social workers and crime prevention officers.
