Avoiding Scams Presentation and Drug Take Back

Rensselaer County’s Hoosick Falls Senior Center at 69 Church Street, Hoosick Falls, will host Jeff Russo with the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Department to speak on How To Avoid Scams on Tuesday, July 30th at 12:45. As scams today have become smarter and more sophisticated, we need to always be on the alert. While the risk of becoming a victim of scams is high for everyone, the rate of seniors that fall victim is staggering. A scam could leave you with a depleted bank account. All residents 60 and over should plan to attend this free presentation to learn why seniors are targeted, preventative steps to avoid falling for a scam, and what to do if you think you have fallen victim. The Sheriff’s Dept. will also collect any unused prescription drugs that need to be disposed. Plan to come early for a nutritious lunch (Chicken Pattie Parmesan) for a suggested $3 donation. Strawberry Shortcake sponsored by BSNENY will be served during the presentation. Call the center at 518-686-7561 to be added to the lunch list.
