[ARCHIVED] H.E.L.P.S. - Helping Elders Learn to Prevent Scams

helps poster

Losing money to fraud, scams, and exploitation can be devastating to anyone, but especially to an older adult, who may not be able to replace what was lost.  Many have worked a lifetime building a savings to be able to retire and it is precisely because of that savings that seniors are vulnerable. 

Sheriff Greg Seabolt is introducing a new program to help elders learn about scams / fraud and internet safety so they can be aware of and how to prevent being scammed.

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Community Outreach, in conjunction with the Randolph County Public Library System’s Digital Services Librarian, will be presenting programs for citizens about scams/frauds and ways to prevent them and ways to protect yourself when using the internet.  

Know someone who may benefit? Two sessions have been scheduled for August 16th at the Asheboro Public Library, located at 201 Worth St., Asheboro, at 9 am, and again at 2 pm.  For future sessions, check the Sheriff’s Office “News” on their website, the Randolph County Library calendar, follow our social media pages or give us a call for program dates or to schedule a presentation.
