Veterans in the crosshairs of scammers

Thursday, December 12, 2019 by The Press in News Briefs

While veterans and nonveterans alike are targeted by scammers, an AARP study found veterans are twice as likely as nonveterans to lose money to fraud schemes. And nearly 80 percent of veterans reported being targeted by scams related to their service, such as fundraising appeals from fake military charities or being told of “little known” government programs that could mean cash for veterans. As we honor those who have served our country, know that scammers go to great lengths to target their money, their benefits and their commitment to current and former soldiers.

Help a senior this holiday season

The holiday season is also the season of giving and a time to share smiles with those around you. As you gather to drink hot cocoa and sing carols with family and friends, it’s important to remember there are seniors in your community who would love to celebrate, too. However, many seniors live alone, without someone to share this special time.
