You've worked hard for your money, don't give it away to scammers! Did you know that for the 2012/2013 financial year older people in the UK lost £1.5 billion to fraud?
As part of our mission to change the face of ageing, Home Instead Senior Care are running a Senior Fraud Protection campaign in partnership with two national charities - Think Jessica and the Alzheimer's Society. We are visiting as many community groups as we can to raise awareness of the scams targeted at older people and advise how they can protect themselves. Our awareness talks explain why older people are targeted by scammers, the main types of scams and the techniques used to convince you to part with your money. We are also providing individuals with a toolkit of information about scams, which contain checklists for you to refer to.
Remember, if it sounds too good be true......it probably is!
For more information about Senior Fraud Protection, to book an awareness talk for your community group or to request a toolkit please contact Home Instead Senior Care in Telford on 01952 581112.
