Following the event, Harber plans to take his TV show on the road for a statewide "town hall" tour focused on scams targeting youth and the elderly.

During the statewide town hall, Harber will announce his broadcast plans for the series, he tells Colorado Politics.

"We’re excited about the coalition of Colorado leaders who are providing the expertise for the series and offering direct assistance to Coloradans in need -- representing the first time in Colorado’s history such a group has been organized in support of a television series," Harber said.

 “As attorney general, I am committed to protecting Colorado’s consumers and getting the word out so consumers can better protect themselves from scams and deceptive practices, Weiser said in a statement. "Thanks, Aaron Harber, for stepping up to help do just that.”

Dunn added: “Coloradans are far too often victims of financial crimes. This program will help them learn about common scams and how to protect themselves moving forward.

"In addition, viewers will learn that the U.S. Attorney’s Office has a number of tools available to identify and prosecute these fraudsters. Together we can educate viewers to be cautious of easy money schemes and let them know we are here to help them.”
