Senior Financial Fraud Seminar

Eddie Peters

Join the Eloy Police Department and four of your Robson Ranch homeowners who will present “Senior Financial Fraud … Keep Your Money in Your Pockets and the Bad Guys Away,” a fast-moving, dynamic seminar that will prepare you to identify and protect yourself from financial fraud and schemes aimed at seniors. Think it can’t happen to you? You’ll hear sad but true stories of how seniors are taken advantage of by professional scammers, including some right here at Robson Ranch.

Losses to financial scammers among seniors last year cost us $1.2 billion. And it’s estimated that only 28 percent of all fraud among seniors is even reported.

You’ll leave this program with essential knowledge and tools that you can use immediately, to protect yourself and others.

Among the schemes you’ll learn about are phishing, telemarketing, ransomware, grandparent, medicare, investment, and romance scams, as well as high pressure sales, and reverse mortgages. And, we are offering a free resource guide for reporting financial scams.

When: Wednesday, Sept. 15, 1 to 2 p.m.

Where: Hermosa Ballroom, The Ranch House

Cost: Free to Robson Ranch residents, friends, and family
