CT Lottery Participates in “CONSUMER UNIVERSITY”
The Office of the Attorney General presented “Consumer University,” a free half-day event in conjunction with RSVP of New Britain (the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program) and People’s United Bank at the Norwalk Senior Center held on November 2, 2011.
The second in a series of four Consumer University programs offered to residents throughout Connecticut, older adults in the Norwalk area were invited to hear from FBI agents, local police officers, and state experts about how to protect themselves from being a victim of fraud and scams, a problem that has escalated with the economic climate.
The CT Lottery, in addition to several other state agencies and non-profit groups, were available at the event to provide free literature and other materials, and to answer specific questions from participants.
“I’m pleased that the CT Lottery was able to participate in such a valuable program as the Consumer University,” said Anne M. Noble, President and CEO for the CT Lottery. “It is of the utmost importance to the CT Lottery to inform our players about playing safely.”
