State representatives Karen Boback and Phyllis Mundy are putting on an elder-justice seminar to help keep seniors safe from fraud and scams. The event is scheduled for 9 to 11:30 a.m. May 12 in Misericordia University’s Insalaco Hall.
“Unfortunately, seniors are frequent targets for identity theft and numerous other scams,” Mundy said. “This event will help them avoid being the next victim and let them know where they can turn for help.”
Topics to be covered include: principles and practice of elder justice, powers of attorney, estate planning, responding to crimes against the elderly and conducting investigations.
State Aging Department Secretary Brian Duke is scheduled to speak, as well as Ron Costen of Temple University’s Department of Aging Institute on Protective Services and Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis.
