Chief warns Plainville elderly about identity scams

Posted by Martin Finucane March 28, 2007 11:38 AM


Postal inspectors will talk about the dangers of identity theft at the Plainville Senior Center at 12:45 p.m. tomorrow. Police Chief Edward M. Merrick Jr. said older people are often targeted by scams.

"They’re constantly getting bamboozled on the phone," said Merrick, adding that he hoped tomorrow’s presentation would spur more seniors to report fraud attempts.
