On Thursday, April 21 Volunteer Action for Aging hosted a “Fraud in the Community” presentation at the Ventura Townehouse. Employees from SCAN’s Special Investigations Unit shared with seniors how to recognize a fraud scam and how to avoid being a victim. The two most common fraud scams targeting seniors are healthcare fraud and telemarketing fraud. This particular presentation was timed to coincide with tax season since fraudulent activities are more prevalent now.
Rachel DeMaree, Investigator-Special Investigations Unit at SCAN Health Plan made the presentation while Sandhi Ton handled the graphics.
