State to host forums to help residents fight fraud

The Ohio attorney general's office will hold regional forums around the state this summer to discuss how Ohioans can work together to fight fraud. 

The sessions coincide with the state's new cyber fraud law. Now in effect, it gives the attorney general's office the same subpoena power local prosecutors have in suspected cases of identity theft, website scams and other online fraud. Forums are planned for Dayton, Cincinnati, Toledo and Columbus over the next four months. The Columbus session takes place in September at the Columbus Police Academy.
