Tall Trees Tanah Merah will host a free fraud seminar for seniors next week to help them identify risks that can lead significant financial loss.
The seminar will focus on risks that can compromise their personal details leading to financial fraud. Tall Trees director Phil Usher advances in technology were making it easier for seniors to be taken advantage of by scam artists.
“In addition to the obvious threat posed by stolen credit cards and identification cards, many seniors are on the web or using smart phones, which themselves present a variety of security issues that may not be immediately obvious” Mr Usher said.
Speakers at the event will include Peter Wild, Branch Manager of Bendigo Community Bank Springwood and Sergeant Julie Campbell from the Logan Crime Prevention Unit.
Mr Usher said that seminars such as this are a great way for seniors to learn while meeting new people.
“It’s excellent that seniors are proactive about using the latest technology, and we want them to be safe in the process – this seminar will help them to do so.”
The seminar is open to all local seniors and will start at 1:30pm on October 17th.
The seminar will be held at Tall Trees Tanah Merah is located at 3745 Pacific Highway, Slacks Creek.
