South S.F. festival to teach seniors about fraud

The Retired Senior Volunteer Program of San Mateo County will host Senior Fraud Fest on Sept. 17 in an effort to educate attendees about financial predators, according to the organization.

“The recent scams that are out there are aimed at defrauding seniors of their money,'' said the organization's director Deborah Owdom. “California is being targeted the most, and seniors in California are targeted more than any other population.''

According to the organization, the educational festival will teach attendees how to better safeguard their money, homes and other assets from theft.

Guest speakers will include San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney John Wilson, Supervisor Adrienne Tissier and others.

The event will also include about 20 exhibitors, representing organizations such as the California Board of Pharmacy, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program.

Senior Fraud Fest will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the South San Francisco Conference Center, located at 255 S. Airport Blvd. in South San Francisco.

To R.S.V.P., call (650) 696-7661 by Sept. 7.
