WATSONVILLE — Assemblymen Luis Alejo (D-Salinas), Bill Monning (D-Santa Cruz) and the Contractors State License Board invite seniors, care providers and family members to a free Senior Scam Stopper seminar in Watsonville on Friday.
Experts will provide tips on how to protect and prevent fraud related to home repair, insurance, health, care, finances, and identity theft. Local agencies/organizations will also be on site to talk about their services.
“These seminars are empowering for seniors who are often targeted during these tough economic times,” says Alejo. “I strongly encourage all seniors, care providers, and relatives to attend to learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones.”
According to the Contractors State License Board of California, the counties of Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey are projected to see an increase of seniors in the following years. With the alarming under reported number of senior scams, these types of seminars are the best way to protect members of our community.
Lunch will be provided by the Watsonville Senior Center at 11:30 a.m. for those who confirm their attendance with Alejo’s office. Call 759-8676 or send an email to Leticia.Perez-Aceves@asm.ca.gov.
