Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on a webinar on scams targeting older adults before, during and after disasters.
Older Americans are often the target of online and telemarketing scams – and natural disasters provide the perfect environment for scammers to move in. This webinar, presented by an attorney from the Federal Trade Commission’s Northeast Regional Office, will help you to identify common types of frauds and scams that target older Americans, focusing in particular on scams related to weather emergencies, COVID-19, and other disasters, and provide guidance on how to protect yourself from those scams.
Who should attend? The whole community, workplace management, family members and other care givers, federal, state and local agencies, community and faith-based organizations.
