CANCELLED: Older Adults: Scams 101 In-Person
Older adults are a favorite target for con artists and swindlers. Typically, these criminals use personal information, persistence and intimidation to swindle money from their victims. Unfortunately, scam victims may be too embarrassed or fearful to admit doubts to family or friends. Con artists usually appear to be trustworthy and sincere, and one can easily be taken in by an offer that seems too good to resist, especially from someone who sounds like a nice person. Lifespan can help if you suspect a scam or fraud. Lifespan can also help you avoid or handle unscrupulous contractors and telemarketers.
Lifespans presentation, Scams Frauds and Identity theft strategies for prevention is a deep dive into the world of scammers and how best to protect yourself and family from these criminals.
