Con artists trying to steal our money? From the snake oil salesmen of covered wagon days to the sophisticated internet and telephone scams of today – the deal is the same - the conmen win and we lose – but it doesn’t have to be that way – we do not have to be victims of internet or boiler room scams.

Experts in cyberspace, financial services and law enforcement talk about the problem and some solutions.

This episode features Nate Nottke from Google, Peter Malionek, VP Security Investigations Officer, Eastern Bank, Officer Dan Burosso from the Cambridge Police Department, and Lydia Placid-Brooks, branch manager of the Central Square branch of Eastern Bank.
