Join us for a FORUM: FRAUDS AND SCAMS
December 13, 2012 9:30-11:00 am
Senior Center Auditorium
No registration necessary
Elder fraud and scams are increasing in number and the perpetrators of these scams and schemes are becoming more sophisticated. It can be difficult to tell a scammer from a legitimate business person. Scams happen year-round and while the holidays bring out the best in most people it is an especially fruitful time for crooks who want to separate you from your money. Santa Clara Police Detective Sergeant Kiet Nguyen and Santa Clara County District Attorney Janet Berry will be our featured speakers. All community members are invited to attend this panel discussion as our experts talk about:
- Scams that target the elderly – how to recognize them and what to do if you are targeted.
- Tools and practices you can use to prevent from being scammed.
- Services available to the community regarding fraud and scams.
Protect yourself, your senior family members, and your friends. Light refreshments will be served. Call the Senior Center (1-408-615-3170) with questions.
