Fraud and Scams Targeted to Seniors

Friday, August 28, 2015 at Southwest Branch

Frauds and Scams: What is a Fraud/Scam? A deceptive act or operation. Deprive by deceit. The United States Government states that Frauds and Scams are significantly under-reported crimes. The deceptive act can be committed through media, mail, wire, phone, or internet. Documented evidence in 2013 has stated some seniors have paid out over six figure sums to get hold of their non-existent winnings. Seniors are the prime targets for these types of crimes. Older Americans lose $2.9 billion annually due to Frauds and Scams. The Orange County Sheriff's Office Senior Crime Prevention Unit will be sharing what are the most prevalent Frauds and Scams that are prying on our senior population, what you can do to prevent victimization. Why is 3 minutes so important when it comes to a Scam? #nextchapter
