CSLB’s Senior Scam Stopper Seminars

senior scamWhen it comes to construction and contracting scams, seniors are the most-targeted and vulnerable group. According to the Contractors State License Board (CSLB), one in five seniors has been the victim of such a scam.

In an effort to protect seniors, CSLB—in cooperation with legislators, State and local agencies, law enforcement, district attorneys, and community-based organizations—offers Senior Scam Stopper seminars throughout the State. The seminars provide information about construction scams and how to protect yourself, as well as expert speakers who discuss other fraud-related topics such as identity theft, and auto repair, Medicare, foreign lottery, and mail scams.

There are several Senior Scam Stopper seminars held every month. Here’s where and when they’re happening this month:

  • San Diego: April 6, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
  • Fontana: April 9, 10 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
