Safeguarding Our Seniors Seminar
Have you ever been pressured to provide personal information to someone you don’t know over the phone or through email? Or received a phone call or letter letting you know you’ve suddenly won a large amount of money? Senior financial abuse is often under-reported and misunderstood. The Better Business Bureau and Allianz Life have partnered together to provide the seminar “Safeguarding Our Seniors – Be Empowered to Take Action” to raise awareness and empower seniors and caregivers to take action against senior fraud and financial abuse. This event is free and open to the public; no registration is required. Call Lori at 476-5977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
