CorePlus to Host Free 'Senior Financial Scams' Seminar May 3 in Colchester

“Senior Financial Scams: How to Protect Family and Friends” 

Did you know that out-of-pocket costs associated with senior financial scams and exploitation are estimated at $2.9 billion a year? And that’s on the low side because many cases go unreported.
As the net worth of seniors increases, so does the likelihood they’ll be targeted by con artists trying to strip them of their life savings. Senior scams are on the rise, but with proper prevention and education, we can reverse that trend.
To increase your odds that you or a loved one—or someone in your care—can avoid becoming a victim of financial exploitation, you need to know the facts. Your professional friends at CorePlus Credit Union can help. 
  • Thursday, May 3 at 11.00am
  • Colchester Senior Center
  • 95 Norwich Avenue, Colchester 
All seminars are FREE and open to the public. At the seminar, you’ll find out how big the problem of financial exploitation is, who’s committing the crime, common examples of senior scams, how to recognize signs of abuse, see what the long-term effects of exploitation are, how to prevent it, and where to go for help.
This event is sponsored by the Colchester Commission on Aging.
