Coffee & Conversation at Wesley Woods with the Gilford Police Chief

COFFEE & CONVERSATION – Heading off Frauds and Scams!
Wesley Woods would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, January 17th at 10am for some coffee and conversation with Chief Anthony Bean Burpee of the Gilford Police Department.
Come over and warm up with a hot cup of coffee or tea in our Community Room, located in the First United Methodist Church off Route 11A in Gilford.
Chief Bean Burpee’s topic will be about heading off fraud and scams. Today, more than ever, everyone needs to be aware of “fraud” and “scams” targeted at individuals. Seniors, in particular, are susceptible to these types of crimes as they generally grew-up in an era where they were raised to be polite and trusting. Con artists exploit such traits, knowing that it is difficult or sometimes impossible for this generation of citizens to simply say “no” or to just hang-up the telephone. Gilford Chief Anthony Bean Burpee will discuss what the National Council on Aging lists as the “Top 10 Financial Scams Targeting Seniors” and will share tips on how not become a victim of such scams.
This is our first in a series of Safety First talks that will be brought to you through the first of the year.
