TOPEKA — Kansas securities commissioner Marc Wilson said if you’ve been laid off, you could be a target for scam artists. Con artists know that when people leave their jobs, they may receive a lump sum severance and have the discretion to transfer retirement savings into other investments, and that makes them a target for well-heeled crooks, he said.
