Financial Education – Safe Banking for Seniors

You’re invited to a free community event series on identifying and avoiding scams, which are on the rise.
Where: First Congregational Church

280 S Spartan, Forks, WA 98331

When: Wednesday, December 13 at 2pm

Duration: 60 minutes with extra time after for questions and discussions.

Identifying and Avoiding Scams: Scammers target older customers because of the size of their assets, their tendency to be more trusting, the likelihood of their being stressed by family, medical and financial problems, their concern about having enough money and their embarrassment about admitting they’ve been duped. Seniors are also more likely to suffer from declining cognitive skills, making them even more vulnerable to fraud and manipulation. Topics to be covered include:

  • What a scam is 

  • Why scams work 

  • Types of scams 

  • Warning signs of scams 

  • Building scam defenses
