Bernard A. Tolbert, special agent in charge of the FBI's Buffalo office, will speak at a University at Buffalo senior alumni luncheon to be held at noon March 9 in the Center for Tomorrow on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

Tolbert, who received a bachelor's degree from UB in 1971 and a master's degree from the UB School of Social work in 1973, will offer tips on how to avoid falling prey to scams and cons. He is a member of the UB Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Before he joined the FBI in 1980, Tolbert taught school briefly and for five years was a social-work professional with several area service agencies.

For the past 30 years, he has been actively involved with Cradle Beach, a camp that serves youngsters with a range of physical, emotional and social developmental disabilities.

An outstanding track star, he was named to UB's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988.

Cost of the luncheon, designed for UB senior alumni, their spouses and guests, is $10 per person.
