Seniors are frequent targets of scammers because they are seen as more likely to have a nest egg, own their home, and be less internet-savvy. Scammers will use a variety of methods to try to take advantage of seniors, including telemarketing calls, door-to-door sales, and email/internet schemes. It’s important for retirees to be aware of these scams against seniors and know how to protect themselves.
The Seniors Center Blog’s post “Do You Know How to Spot the Signs of Scams Against Seniors?” details some of the most common scams targeting seniors and provides tips on how to protect yourself.
