TOPEKA – Information to help consumers protect themselves from identity theft, scams and deceptive business practices will be offered next week at the Ellis County Fair, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

“Helping Kansans protect themselves and their families from scams and rip-offs is part of our mission,” Schmidt said. “I hope folks will stop by our booth to visit and to pick up some information.”

Schmidt’s office will sponsor a booth in the Unrein Family Building at the fairgrounds to provide information and help consumers learn more about the latest scams being reported in the state. The booth will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. July 15 through July 17; and 4:30 to 10 p.m. July 18.
