Several Scams Target Senior Citizens


The Grandparent Scam, which comes in the form of a phone call, is targeting many senior citizens and people with disabilities in the four-state area. According to West Virginia Attorney General, scammers will randomly dial peoples’ number until they are able to speak to a senior citizen.

To avoid being scammed, elderly people must stay calm throughout the conversation. They should give out credit card numbers as well as banking routing numbers to someone calling them over the phone. Instead of panicking, they should get the contact information of the caller as well as the name for a possible callback.
