AGING MATTERS radio program

12/08/2020 to 12/08/2020

2701-C Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201

More than 334,000 scams and financial abuse cases targeting older adults, along with an estimated $6.3 billion in damages, are reported to authorities every year. Most experts agree that’s just the tip of the iceberg since many crimes of this nature where older adults are victims, are never reported. Listen to AGING MATTERS radio on Tuesday December 8 at 2:00 pm on WERA-LP 96.7 FM when host Cheryl Beversdorf talks with Stephen Izaguirre, Community Outreach Coordinator, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, about scams, identity theft and fraudulent schemes used to take advantage of older adults, how knowledge about these practices can prevent them from being victims, and how the Attorney General's Office can help.
