Preventing Elder Fraud - Lunch & Learn

 

Preventing Elder Fraud

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 - 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Statistics show that an increasing number of people, in general, are falling victim to scams. Part of the problem is that scammers are highly adaptable and can mimic legitimate communications from romantic partners, tech support staff, and government employees. One group particularly affected by this issue is the elderly. Those homeowners with healthy financial savings, good credit scores, and a trusting nature often prove to be attractive targets for scammers.

Elder fraud is on the rise and has resulted in over a billion dollars in losses in 2021. Learn about scams targeting older adults, what to do if you are a victim of fraud, and how best to protect yourself and your loved ones.  

We hope you will join the conversation Wednesday, December 14th.

Details:

When: Wednesday, December 14, 2022 - 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Where:  Canton Administration Building - First Floor Board Room

1150 Canton Center Rd., Canton, MI 48187

Cost: FREE (but we do ask that you register so we have enough seating)

Please bring your lunch or something to nibble on.
