Event Details

Scammers are brazen. And they are savvy. They use scare tactics — or they tug at heartstrings.

Millions of seniors fall victim to confidence schemes. Top scams include: government imposter, grandparent, Medicare/ health insurance, sweepstakes/ lottery, romance, e-mail fraud,
charity.

Elderly are targeted because they are of a more-trusting generation. And it’s easier to fool
someone via modern technology, rather than face-to-face. Also, seniors often have savings, good
credit, and a home. They might be experiencing cognitive decline, or taking strong medications, or
simply be lonely, all of which make them vulnerable.

An expert on scams will share real life anecdotes and discuss how to protect our loved ones from
this escalating phenomenon.
