Attorney General, Patrick Morrisey, is a holding a series of events to celebrate Money Smart Week 2019.
The events are designed to remind consumers about financial literacy and educate them on ways to protect personal information.
A scam presentation was offered this morning at the North Preston Senior Center in Bruceton Mills.
This is helping seniors to see through red flags so they do not send hard earned money out to scammers.
“I’m in a senior center almost every single day. Talking to seniors about what’s going on. Trying to show them where the red flags are, what not to do. We suggest that they don’t answer the phone, if they don’t know who’s calling them, let it go to answering machine. Anything that we can do to keep them safe,” said Pam Krushansky, field representative and compliance specialist for the office of the Attorney General.
