Phone scams that target seniors are explained as well as instructions for quickly verifying a caller’s legitimacy. The precautions to take when reading email and when participating on social networking sites are prescribed.

Computer Scams, Shams and Spam shifts the odds in the favor of seniors by providing them with the education and
exposure they need to see through common scams, as well as the questions to ask when in doubt.


Seniors are disproportionately targeted by identity theft scams. However, more than 1/3 of surveyed adults over 60 didn’t know what identity theft is.  Elder Law Journal

Seniors need to be educated in the realities of 21st century scams, what they look like, what they sound like, and how to protect themselves from participating in them. Without information they are vulnerable to the ploys of scam artists that rely on naivety and innocence to succeed.
