FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The attorney general's office will be sponsoring Senior Crime College programs across the state in coming weeks to teach the elderly to protect themselves against fraud, identity theft and a variety of scams.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway said the events are intended to educate seniors about unscrupulous sorts who would cheat them. Conway's office has hosted nearly 100 such programs over the past two years.
They've looked at bogus sweepstakes, false employment opportunities, phony government stimulus checks, fake debt-relief scams, identity theft and more.
The next program is Aug. 21 at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville. But several others are scheduled around the state through October.
