Benevilla continues its educational workshop series for 2019 with a look at how older adults can sidestep scams designed to take their money and guard against identity theft. The Benevilla “Education with the Experts” series presents “Ways to Avoid Financial Exploitation of Older Adults” on Thursday, February 21.

With over 50 million Americans aged 62 and older, older adults are prime targets for financial exploitation both by persons they know and trust and by strangers.

Attendees can ask questions and get guidance, along with useful tips to provide you with information to help prevent common frauds, scams and other types of elder financial exploitation in your community.
