Police Offer Education to Protect Elderly from Scammers
June 10, 2021
As the summer months approach, police are once again warning the public to be on the lookout for scammers, especially those targeting the elderly.
Education is best defense
North Woodbury Township Police Chief Dave Rosamilia, said scammers who prey on the elderly are predators who target the most vulnerable of the population.
With two retirement communities in Martinsburg, Rosamilia said scammers have a lot of people in one area to target.
"They try to scare people into giving up their money and with our high elderly population, the scammers see it as an opportunity," Rosamilia said.
