Event teaching seniors to avoid scams and fraud coming May 30

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Neighbors Federal Credit Union is helping to arm community members with tools needed to spot and fight back against scams and fraud targeting the elderly.

WAFB previously reported five times as many older adults, around age 60 and older, reported losing money to certain schemes in 2018. Other scams specifically pressure the vulnerable and elderly into giving up money and personal information.

Organizers hope events like this one will tip the scales to give the elderly more power.

The event will be held Thursday, May 30, from 6-8 p.m. at the EBR Main Library.
