Protecting Older Adults Against COVID-19 Related Scams and Obtaining Relief from Financial Distress WEBINAR
July 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
|Older adults are frequently targeted by individuals promoting fake vaccines, COVID-19 cures, bogus stimulus payments, and other fraudulent schemes and scams. Most scams go unreported and older adults may lose a significant amount of income and assets. This webcast will provide an overview of the frauds and scams aimed at older adults, discuss legal protections, and provide resources to aid older adults defrauded by the individuals and businesses that promote these scams. The training will also focus on efforts by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to prevent older adults from falling victim to these scams, and provide information on addressing financial distress and avoiding foreclosure.|
