Beware of financial relief scams! During this time of uncertainty, our elders are especially vulnerable to phone calls from scam artists.
Have conversations with the senior citizens in your life about not falling prey to calls regarding government-issued relief acts, like a check that may come in the mail for them. These calls will ask for banking info, social security info, etc. Remind them the government is never going to call and ask for these things.
Be diligent. Cyber attackers are coming in full force with phishing expeditions to try and fool people. Remind our senior citizens not to give out their info or be taken advantage of. They can be trusting and may believe there’s an honest person on the line.
Also consider they may have already been duped and are too embarrassed to tell anyone. We must keep the vultures at bay in this troubling time.
Phones and email lines are always open over at Stiles Law. If you have any questions about financial relief scams, contact us by calling (781) 319-1900.
