Crimes against dependent adults and elders are on the rise. They are so prevalent that state Sen. Jerry Hill and Assemblyman Rich Gordon are hosting a free Senior Scam Stopper Seminar on Friday, Sept. 27.
The event is scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Senior Center, 1455 Madison Ave., Redwood City.
At the seminar, seniors, their families and caregivers will learn how to protect themselves from fraud such as identity theft, telephone scams, and financial, insurance and mail fraud. The public is asked to RSVP by calling Hill's office at 650-212-3313 or by going to senate.ca.gov/2958/seniorscamstopper.
