OUR NEXT MEETING

All meetings are free and open to the public

The next meeting is Tuesday, March 3rd at 7:00 PM in Multi-Use Room 3 at the Fort Collins Senior Center.

There is staggering array of useful information available on the internet. There are also problems that you need to avoid (for example, watch out for those who suggest you have problems that you did not know you had). These problems have different names, but they all fit into the category of scams that can cost you access to your computer (at the least), to some very serious money. There are even, at the moment, tax scams floating around the internet. At the March meeting you will discover how to recognize some of these scams and what to do about them.
