Forum on elder fraud to be held in Perry Hall in March

PERRY HALL, MD—Seniors and their families will have the opportunity to learn about elder fraud abuse from a member of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Baltimore field office next month.

The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th at 7:30 p.m. at the Brightview senior living community located at 9657 Belair Road in Perry Hall (in the Dorsey Room).

The forum is cosponsored by the office of Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, the Perry Hall Improvement Association, the Perry Hall/White Marsh Business Association, and the Woman’s Club of Perry Hall.

FBI Agent Sarah Lewis works for the FBI Baltimore office, Financial Crimes Squad. For the past three years, she has been investigating financial scams, mostly romance and tech fraud, that are victimizing such a large number of our retired community. In an effort to try to prevent these schemes, she has been doing outreach in the community at senior centers, age 55 and over communities, and larger churches.

Agent Lewis will speak about scams, red flags, how to avoid them, current trends, and what to do if you do fall victim. All are welcome, and there is no charge.
