Financial exploitation of older adults and seniors is one of the fastest growing crimes. As part of Fort Scott Presbyterian Village's ongoing “Just Ask” lifelong learning series, a free presentation will be held on July 16 focusing on how older adults can protect themselves from financial scams.
The program called, “Financial Protection for Older Adults: Outsmart the scammer,” will be held from 2-4 p.m. at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village. The event will include a $50 door prize drawing, and light snacks and beverages will be provided.
Matthew Chaplin, Bank Manager for Landmark National Bank, will share ideas and tips on how to keep your finances safe from scammers that attempt to obtain your personal and financial information.
Matthew is a US Navy veteran who transitioned into banking in 2018. Since then he has been learning and becoming an expert in fraud awareness and prevention.
