  • The Oklahoma Insurance Department will be in Ardmore starting at 8:30 a.m. Thursday for a free “WhoDunIt? Investigating Fraud,” at the convention center.
     
    The event is designed for senior citizens. Those who attend the half-day event will learn how to spot, avoid and fight fraud.
     
    “It is unfortunate to know that no one is safe from fraud and scams, including the senior citizens of our state, but we are determined to put tools in the hands of Oklahomans to help defend against this criminal activity,” said Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak. “These conferences are extremely important and helpful to seniors because they are taught how to recognize a scam and then shown what to do and who to contact.”
     
    The conference topics include: Medicare Fraud, Funeral Home Trust Fraud, Contractor Fraud, Postal Fraud and Investment Fraud. Participants will also attend a “Fraud Fashion Show,” featuring local law enforcement and utility workers in their official uniforms explaining what they do during a legitimate home visit. Each conference is free for senior adults and
     
    The event includes breakfast. The conference will be from 9 to 11:45 a.m.
