United Way of North Carolina and the Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) are starting North Carolina’s first cybercrime support and recovery hotline. The new system allows North Carolina residents to dial 211 to report and find resources to recover from identity theft, financial fraud, cyberstalking, cyberbullying, and other cybercrimes. This initiative was made possible through a Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Victim Assistance Grant that was awarded by The North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission. Additional support for the project has been provided by the North Carolina Department of Information Technology (NCDIT).
The Senior Resource Center partners with Senior Planet for classes on scam prevention. Contact Megan for more details (910) 612-5379.
