Phone scams targeting seniors are on the rise, over a billion dollars are wasted a year on scamming activity. But there is one group making a difference. It's called "Savvy Seniors."

The goal is to promote awareness of Medicare error, fraud and abuse and resolve problems identified by beneficiaries, caregivers and advocates. Ken Wolvington and Audrey Arnold are two of the actors of the group. See their skit in the video.
Also, executive director of the Lyric Theatre Company, Syndi Zook, gave insight on the program. She helps supply the actors for these skits. Watch the video for more.
