We know that seniors are common targets of scams. Just recently, several local seniors have fallen victim to scam artists, resulting in the loss of hundreds of thousands of retirement dollars. That’s why Metro Meals on Wheels is partnering with our Better Business Bureau to help seniors avoid being victims of scams. Check out the Be Senior Savvy section on their website for resources that aid seniors in identifying and steering clear of scams. The best place to start from, especially for volunteers, is the Top Scams Targeting Seniors, which includes a video detailing the three most common senior scams as well as what to look out for if you are a caregiver.
Please help spread the word to keep more seniors safe in 2016!
