Hodges University News

Identity theft is a growing problem in today’s society, and it can often be difficult to prevent. However, through a generous donation from AARP, Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute is offering retirees in Southwest Florida the opportunity to hear from industry experts on the problem of identity theft and current scams.

Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute will host a session from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on November 15 at South Port Square in Port Charlotte, which is located at 23023 Westchester Blvd., Port Charlotte, FL, 33980, and from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on November 16 in the John White Community Room on the Naples campus.

Carrie Kerskie, director of Hodges’ Identity Fraud Institute, encourages retirees living in Southwest Florida to participate, saying, “The Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges University believes that education is key in the fight against fraud, scams and identity theft. By attending this event, you will become better prepared to detect, prevent and mitigate fraud and identity theft.”

The hour-long sessions will include a panel of experts who will discuss fraud and identity theft protection. Panelists for the events include experts from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Attorney General’s Office, Hodges University, CPR Tools, Inc., IRS Criminal Investigation, CyberSecurity Defense Solutions and Vernon Litigation Group.

These community forums are free; however, advanced registration is required. To register, visit or contact Carrie Kerskie, director of the Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges University, at ckerskie@hodges.eduor (239) 598-6281.
