The Kingston Senior Center recently held an “Aware, Avoid, Alert” program. The program is part of the Senior Crime Prevention University sponsored by the Attorney General of Pennsylvania. Participants were part of an interactive presentation that taught them to be ‘aware’ of the threat of fraud and scams to the community; how to ‘avoid’ being victimized; and how to make sure they know to ‘alert’ local law enforcement when they are concerned about their safety. David Shallcross, a representative from the Office of the Attorney General, shared the latest tricks criminals are using to commit fraud and scams in our communities.
