SECUs Scam Jam targets elder abuse
RALEIGH, N.C. (6/2/08)--A recent Scam Jam event focusing on protecting senior adults from abuse and identity theft was held May 3 by State Employees’ CU (SECU) in Raleigh. “Senior adults are the primary target for so many of today’s scams, including identity theft,” said Karen Daeke, vice president of SECU’s security administration department. “The credit union is aggressively working to educate our members about the various scams and fraudulent practices so they will be better prepared to recognize and avoid such activity.” The event provided workshops, information booths and shredding services. It was promoted to SECU’s Golden Circle members who are located within a one-hour driving distance of the event. SECU has partnered with the attorney general’s office to host other educational presentations related to senior scams, elder abuse and identity theft. SECU also trains its employees on scams and elder abuse. “Knowledge is key in protecting yourself from savvy fraudsters who are more prevalent than ever before,” Daeke said. “Some of our members have fallen victim to various fraudulent practices and the credit union is committed to helping members get the information they need to protect themselves now and in the future.”
