Fraud doesn’t take a vacation from the virus, and is very much ready to take advantage of our vulnerable senior population.

You are invited to 20 minute webinar with Police Department Public Information Officer, Tim Martin, to learn about the latest in senior fraud, including robocalls, phishing scams, undelivered goods, and charity scams. This webinar is targeted to facility administrators, so they can pass the information directly to their residents and patients. Q&A will be allowed at the end of the presentation, as time allows.

WHEN: Thursday, April 2, 2020
TIME:
TIME CHANGED TO 1:00PM

RSVP via email if you would like to participate. Space is limited. You will be emailed an invitation on how to join the webinar through your PC, phone application, or dial‐in before April 2nd.
