Read the fine print to avoid senior scams

Take financial precautions by reading the fine printIn Los Angeles, much of the mail seniors are receiving is for things that the senior is most likely not looking to sign-up for or purchase.  It is important, as your loved ones age, to take a more active role in their daily living activities and for some of us with aging parents and grandparents that means even going through the mail together.  As younger adults we may be a little keener to that which we need to avoid to protect our financial security and identity.  Some seniors, for whatever reasons you’d like to attribute it to, are more apt to “buy-in” to the scammers attempts to collect information.  Many offers for products and services will come as advertisement in the mail.  Some of the advertisements will be for legitimate businesses and things that the senior may be interested in incorporating into their lives, while other things that come in the mail are really just a way to scam a senior out of hundreds or thousands of dollars by obtaining their financial information or identity.
