"They're looked at by scammers as cash cows. Our seniors are the nicest group of people and sometimes we have to teach them, when it's in their best interest to say no, to not open the door, to hang up the phone." - CSLEA Unit A Vice President Kenny Ehrman
The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association Consumer Protection & Public Safety Foundation (CSLEA-CPPS) partners with the State Bar of California to present to seniors ways to protect themselves from scams, schemes and rip-offs.
Why host or attend a seminar?
"It is a great opportunity for our seniors to be brought up to date on the latest scams, particularly those that target the elderly," said CSLEA Unit A Vice President Kenny Ehrman. "Just to have someone in law enforcement tell them, it's okay to question those who call or come to your home, it's okay not to answer the door, it's okay to hang up the phone. Be curious, be cautious, call a family member to help explain things you may not understand."
