Savvy Seniors program: Scam alert for seniors

Port Huron, MI – McLaren Port Huron will present the Savvy Seniors program Scam Alert for Seniors Tuesday, June 21, 10 – 11 a.m. in the hospital’s Charles Classroom (please use the Rourke entrance).

Scams targeting senior citizens are extremely prevalent and often go unreported due to the victim’s embarrassment and fear of losing their independence. Deceptive practices against seniors are perpetrated in person, over the phone, and on the internet, and can be hard to identify especially if the individual is isolated and unfamiliar with common red flags. Join St. Clair County Sheriff Mat King to learn how to protect yourself from scammers.

This program is free, and registration is required. To register or for more information call HealthAccess at 1-800-228-1484.
