GRANITE CITY, Ill. – Local residents over the age of 55 are invited to join state Rep. Jay Hoffman, D-Swansea, for a senior fraud prevention seminar he is hosting next month with the Illinois Attorney General’s office and state Reps. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, and Monica Bristow, D-Alton.
“Many scammers specifically prey upon and take advantage of seniors, so it is important for our neighbors to be diligent in protecting themselves and their loved ones from identity thieves,” said Hoffman. “I encourage local seniors to stop by to learn easy ways to protect themselves from identity fraud.”
Hoffman is partnering with other local lawmakers and the Illinois Attorney General’s office to host a senior fraud prevention seminar on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10:30 a.m., at the Granite City Township Hall, located at 2060 Delmar Ave. in Granite City. Hoffman’s senior fraud prevention seminar is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is appreciated.
“At my senior fraud prevention seminar we will discuss easy ways to protect your personal information, like your social security number, to help decrease your chances of falling victim to identity thieves,” continued Hoffman. “I encourage local seniors to stop by to learn how to recognize scams and fraudulent activities, protect their identities and their savings.”
