Con artists prey on older adults. Shame on them!

Shrewd schemes and sophisticated slick presentations lure often unsuspecting seniors into peril. As we age we remain gullible and susceptible to false beliefs in get rich quick stories. Older adults tend to trust and believe in people who appear friendly, nice, well dressed, mannered, and kind. Scammers know what buttons to press to gain entry into the private financial and personal worlds of people.

Our host Gregory Bator asks the FBI Agent to reveal what to look for in person, over the phone, on the computer, and through the mail. We explore the face of common scams so that viewers can see danger before it impacts their lives.
