This Month: Senior Fraud | Speaker: FBI SA Martin Hellmer
Each year, millions of elderly Americans fall victim to some type of financial fraud or confidence scheme,
including romance, lottery, and sweepstakes scams, to name a few. Seniors are often targeted because
they tend to be trusting and polite. They also usually have financial savings, own a home, and have good
credit—all of which make them attractive to scammers. Once successful, scammers are likely to keep a
scheme going because of the prospect of significant financial gain. Learn more from FBI Special Agents
on the common fraud scams, how to protect yourself, how to report, and what resources are available
to you.
Registration is required (below) and seating is limited. $10 donation appreciated at the door.
