A free lunch without a catch...

I'm a firm believer that there are no free lunches in this world. However, here's one that may be an exception to that rule. The Utah Division of Securities and several other organizations are sponsoring a free conference on how to avoid becoming a victim of fraud. Those who register also get a free lunch!

Topics for the conference include such things as affinity fraud, Ponzi schemes, the psychology of fraud perpetrators and fraud victims, and common markers of fraud. In addition, one of the sessions I'm most interested in is hearing from Carolyn Jessop who escaped with her five children from a polygamous sect. She has written two books documenting her experiences and has been a guest on the Oprah Show and Good Morning America. She will be speaking on "How to say no when everyone around me is saying yes."

The conference is on June 30th from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm. They asked me to be on a panel session from 10-11 am. See you there!
