Scam forum in Bennington reaches out to seniors

Posted: Updated:

Seniors in southern Vermont are being invited to a forum on the dangers of financial scams.

AARP and the attorney general's office are hosting the event on Thursday at the Bennington Museum.

They are going to explain different scams targeting seniors in our region, like a recent lottery scam that asks them to pay a fee before they can collect their prize.

AARP officials say these scams are under-reported because people are embarrassed that they were tricked.
