In recent years, scam artists have turned their focus towards the elderly. It is a well-known fact that they posses the greatest amount of disposable income, and the greatest amount of trust. The challenge: how can we help teach them about this problem, and provide them with the means to avoid being scammed?
Through interviews with local seniors and advocate groups, I've created an informational booklet which can help to teach seniors how to spot potential scams, as well as how to "fight back" by protecting their personal information, etc. These booklets will be made readily available at local pharmacies and nursing homes.
