Scams in any form are a pervasive threat to the elderly. They may come in the form of emails, phone calls, or letters in the mail. They may ask for money or personal information. In one particular case in West Virginia, a scammer “informs the person that they owe an unspecified debt which needs to be paid immediately,” according to reports.
If your loved one has received a suspicious request, please always verify these stories before acting! It could make all the difference in the world.
