U.S. Attorney Office to Present Senior Fraud Prevention Seminar at Carmi Library

To educate seniors on the latest scams targeting them online and over the phone, the U.S. Attorney’s Office is partnering with the Carmi Public Library to host a fraud prevention seminar.

“Elder fraud is a major concern nationwide, as criminals target seniors who may be more susceptible to manipulation,” said U.S. Attorney Rachelle Aud Crowe. “To educate seniors on current fraud schemes, a prosecutor with experience charging these scammers will be at the Carmi Public Library to give an interactive and informational presentation on ways to avoid becoming a victim.”

The presentation will highlight information on online scams, fraud schemes targeting seniors, and details on cases prosecuted in the Southern District of Illinois.  The event will start at 1pm on Friday, November 17th at the Carmi Public Library, located at 103 Slocumb Street in Carmi.

The event is free and open to the public.
