Beware of Scams
People of any age may be at risk of falling prey to a scam. Older adults are often the targets of identity theft and scams because they are vulnerable and trusting and scammers try to play on your good will and trust. Victims can be targeted by telephone, mail, door-to-door or over the Internet. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
