Senior Safety Presentation-Cons, Scams, and Crime Prevention

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

As the elderly population grows in Illinois and across our nation, protecting older citizens continues to be a concern for families and local law enforcement. Far too often, scam artists perceive senior citizens as vulnerable and relatively wealthy due to their ability to access retirement accounts and pensions. As a result, seniors are a frequent target of a wide range of consumer fraud scams. Seniors, along with their families and caregivers, are invited to attend Senior Safety - Cons, Scams, and Crime Prevention, on Tuesday, June 19, at the Northbrook Library. The program will be presented by Northbrook Police Community Relations Supervisor Tom Moore, as he provides insight about “popular” ruse burglaries, “grandparent schemes,” IRS imposter calls, and other ways unsuspecting seniors are exploited.
