AG Sends “Fraud Fighters” Van, Life Plan Info

BISBEE, AZ – The first week of February is Consumer Protection Week, and to
highlight information available on this subject, the Copper Queen Library will
host the Arizona Attorney General’s “Fraud Fighters” van across the street
from the library on Wednesday, February 6, from 10am-2pm and welcome
staff from the Attorney General’s Office in the Library Meeting Room at
6:30pm to share information on Life Care Planning.

The “Fraud Fighters” van provides information to consumers in their own

communities on topics such as identity theft, internet safety, how to protect
themselves from scams, how to file a consumer or civil rights complaint, and
how to obtain information about the AG Office’s Civil Rights and Victim
Assistance programs.

At 6:30pm, the AG rep will lock up the van and come upstairs to the Library

Meeting Room to share more useful information, this time on Life Care Planning.
Life Care Planning is important for everyone, whether young or old, healthy or
facing challenges.

Through increased awareness and access to information, Arizonans of all ages

can make their choices known about who will manage their affairs in the event
of an emergency.

Life Care Planning forms and instructions, including Durable Health Care Power

of Attorney, Durable Mental Health Care Power of Attorney, Living Will (End of
Life Care), Letter to My Agent (Representative), and Pre-Hospital Medical
Directive (Do Not Resuscitate) will be available free at the presentation and are
also available for free download from the Attorney General’s website

Attendance at both the “Fraud Fighters” van and the Life Care Planning

presentation are free and open to the public. For further information, contact
the Library Circulation Desk at 432-4232.
