AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - The older population is the fastest growing across the country and often seniors are the ones falling victims to scams.
Home Instead Senior Care has developed a protection kit to help seniors stay in their homes safely. It contains scam-proof check lists and resources for people who think they may have been taken advantage of.
"A recent study done by AARP found that only 25% of the victims over the age of 55 who have been involved in some type of a scam in some way report it," said Dottie Johntony, Director of Operations at Home Instead Senior Care.
Johntony said that's mostly due to a fear of being removed from their home.
The kits can be downloaded online at www.ProtectSeniorsFromFraud.com.com. Home Instead Senior Care will also mail them to people. You can contact Home Instead Senior Care at 330-729-1233.
