Workshop Will Advise Seniors On Financial Scams

State officials are inviting seniors to attend a workshop on preventing financial fraud and scams.

The April 30 workshop on the campus at Western Kentucky University will show seniors how to avoid cyber crime, mail fraud, ID theft and other scams.  The state's Department of Financial Institutions is organizing the workshop and others like it around the state. A release says one in five people over the age of 65 has been a victim of a financial scam.  The 9 a.m. workshop at the university's Knicely Conference Center is free to seniors in and around the Bowling Green area.

This event is co-sponsored by the Barren River Area Development District, Barren River Elder Abuse Prevention Council and the WKU Center for Gerontology.
