How to Avoid Common Scams

Thursday, August 3 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The program will focus on common scams and frauds that target older adults. Topics covered include the warning signs, how to avoid becoming a victim, and where to seek help if you think you are a victim.  There will be special emphasis on common telephone scams such as the “grandparent scam,” the “Internal Revenue Service scam,” and the “foreign lottery scam.”  The program will also cover issues such as identity theft and Internet safety.  Seniors will be provided with “do’s” and “don’ts” to stay safe in their daily lives.
