Vista, CA – The Gloria McClellan Center hosts a free Senior Scam Stopper seminar on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The seminar is presented by Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath’s office and the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). Seniors, their families, and caregivers are welcome to attend.
Seminars provide information about construction-related scams and how seniors can protect themselves when hiring a contractor. Sessions feature expert speakers from many local, state, and federal agencies, who present broader topics, including identity theft, auto repair, Medicare, foreign lotteries, and mail fraud.
Seniors are a vulnerable audience, often preyed upon by unlicensed or unscrupulous contractors. The Senior Scam Stopper seminars are being offered throughout California in cooperation with legislators, state and local agencies, law enforcement, district attorneys, and community-based organizations.
