Letter: Online fraud

To the editor:

I appreciated reading the eye-opening article by Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson about the risks of accidentally reaching a “look-alike website” while trying to access government services.

In addition to the suggestions in this article for the prevention of on-line fraud when seeking government services, there is a large range of safe and free internet resources at our public libraries. A relatively new site is Ramsey County LawHelp, which provides information about self-help legal resources available to Ramsey County residents, along with links to nonprofit legal aid and court programs serving Ramsey County.

For residents in need of assistance in using a computer, our local libraries offer free technology classes made available by donations to the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries.
