DALLAS – In his continuing effort to educate older residents about the latest financial fraud schemes and how to protect themselves, Rep. Mike Cabell (R-Luzerne) is hosting a scam seminar on Thursday, March 14, in Dallas. The free event will begin at 11 a.m. at the Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 4 E. Center Hill Road. The doors will open at 10:30 a.m. 

“Seniors are frequent targets of these unscrupulous scammers, who seem to come up with new ways to steal their hard-earned money every day,” said Cabell. “Area seniors are encouraged to attend and learn how to avoid being scammed.”

The seminar will be led by David Shallcross, director of senior protection with the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. Topics to be covered include what to do if one becomes a victim of identity theft, tips on how to protect personal information online and in everyday interactions, and guidelines on how to spot scams intended to steal one’s identity.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling Cabell’s Dallas office at 570-675-6000.
