SENIOR CENTER SPOTLIGHT: Wilmington Seniors Invited To Seminar To Learn About Scams Targeting The Elderly On September 16

Below is an announcement from the Wilmington Senior Center’s latest newsletter:

WILMINGTON, MA — Join us on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 2pm for a scams seminar at the Senior Center.

As Chair of the Advanced IT, Internet and Cybersecurity Committee, Senator Barry Finegold has partnered with the Middlesex Sheriff’s office to raise awareness about scams, particularly those targeting the elderly. Financial scams targeting the elderly population are not only widespread but on the rise. In fact, according to the FBI, in 2021, there were over 92,000 older victims of fraud, resulting in $1.7 billion in losses. This is a 74 percent increase in losses from 2020.

Please join Senator Finegold, the Middlesex Sheriff’s office, and Wilmington Police Chief Desmond to learn about the latest scams and how to protect yourself! Call the Senior Center at 978-657-7595 to sign up.
