Senior scam-stopper breakfast offers tips to avoid fraud
Each year, older Americans lose billions of dollars to con-artists, telemarketing scams and investment schemes. One in five seniors has been a victim of fraud and new scams are being developed every day.
Assemblymember Chris Holden has joined forces with the California Contractors State License Board and the city of Claremont to host a free senior scam- stopper seminar where residents can learn how to protect themselves from being the victim of a scam.
A panel of experts will be on hand to provide information to seniors on ways to protect themselves from becoming victims of fraud. Attendees can get answers to their questions and obtain assistance if they have been scammed.
The breakfast takes place Wednesday, March 22 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Joslyn Center, 660 N. Mountain Ave., Claremont. To RSVP, contact (909) 399-5488 or visit firstname.lastname@example.org.
