Senior Scam StopperSM Seminars

Seniors are a vulnerable audience, often preyed upon by unlicensed or unscrupulous contractors.

Senior Scam Stopper seminars have been offered  throughout the state since 1999 in cooperation with legislators, state and local agencies, law  enforcement, district attorneys, and community-based organizations.

In addition to providing information about construction-related scams and how seniors can  protect themselves when hiring a contractor, the seminars feature expert speakers from many local,  state and federal agencies, who present broader topics, including identity theft, auto repair, and  investments.

Three Senior Scam Stoppers Seminars will be hosted by Assemblymember Roger Dickinson, in partnership with the Contractors State License Board, Meals on Wheels by Asian Community Center, Capitol Region Red Cross, and PG&E.

The first part of the seminars will focus on financial fraud awareness to avoid falling victim to scams. Red Cross/PG&E will conclude with Emergency Preparedness for older adults, such as disaster education to understand how to make their home or workplace safe.  During the Meals on Wheels lunch (for 60+) the participants learn how to “Get a Kit, Make a Plan, and Be Informed”.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP to Asm. Roger Dickinson’s District Office at 916.324.4676.
