SPRINGDALE -- First Security Bank is hosting a seminar in Springdale especially for seniors.

The seminar is focusing on fraud, theft, and exploitation. Springdale PD is doing a session with their "Don't be a Victim" program, warning citizens on the dangers of burglary.
"Obviously, criminals are looking for opportunity, and if we can do just a few small things to help them not be a victim then that's important to us," said Lt. Derek Hudson with Springdale PD.

The bank is also bringing in identity theft and counterfeit currency specialists from the Secret Service and FBI to explain the best ways for seniors to protect themselves from these crimes.
