State Representative Robyn Gabel and the Cook County Police Department are sponsoring a workshop on preventing senior fraud on Thursday, Jan. 9, at 1:00 pm at the Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge. A representative from the Cook County Police department will present information about common scams and how seniors can protect themselves from financial fraud. In this seminar, you will learn tips on how to protect yourself and your hard-earned savings from people who prey on seniors. Even though this workshop is directed towards seniors, people who are caretakers for seniors or who have elderly parents will also benefit from this workshop.
Also, look for information about future workshops on the implementation of the new conceal and carry gun law and opportunities for small businesses.
