In honor of National Senior Fraud Awareness Day, the Sarasota Senior Friendship Center hosted a free symposium featuring Melissa Leedom, CPA MBA of Secure Aging and Steve Mooney of Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating.
Leedom discussed the top 10 scams targeting seniors, including health insurance fraud, prescription drug fraud, funeral scams, investment schemes, mortgage scams, lottery scams, and identify theft, while Mooney's talk focused on scams employed by dishonest HVAC contractors.
Teaching consumers how to protect themselves from would-be scammers is an integral part of the mission of Sean McCutcheon’s Air Conditioning and Heating. Community. Informed. Protected.
A second symposium was held on Thursday, May 16 at the Venice Senior Friendship Center.
