One in five seniors has been a victim of fraud and seniors are the most targeted group. 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.
