All interested senior citizens in Moultrie and Shelby counties are invited to attend for information on fraud prevention strategies and ways to save money on phone, electric and gas bills. CUB staffers will need seniors to bring copies of their phone and utility bills to analyze for money-saving tips.
Free refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
The Attorney General’s Office will be on hand to speak about common consumer scams targeting senior citizens such as internet lotteries and mail fraud. The Treasurer’s I-Cash computer will be on site to allow seniors to search for unclaimed property.
