One in five Americans aged 65 and older — that’s about 7.3 million senior citizens —already have been victimized by financial fraud according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition, new scams are developed every day.
Canyon Lake residents are invited to a free Senior Scam Stopper Seminar, hosted by Senator Jeff Stone and the City of Temecula, on July 27 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Mary Phillips Senior Center, 41845 6th St., Temecula. Seniors, their families and caregivers are encouraged to attend.
A panel of experts will provide information to seniors on how to protect themselves from becoming victims of fraud. Attendees can get answers to their questions and obtain assistance if they have been scammed. Sandwiches will be provided after the meeting.
For more information or to RSVP, contact Senator Stone’s office at 951-894-3530.
