In 2021, senior scam victims lost an average of $18,246. If someone asks you for money or personal information over a call, text, email or even Facebook message, they’re up to something. NEVER send your private information through these channels. Always contact your doctor, bank or family members through legitimate forms of communication (such as calling them directly). If you think you are a victim of a scam, call your local sheriff’s office to report it immediately!
