Recently, phone scammers have been targeting Pennsylvania seniors across the state. An article by GoErie.com highlighted this phenomenon, which is important for all elderly citizens and their family and friends to know about! According to the article, a representative from the PA Department of Aging reported that these scams are not uncommon among their 52 area agencies, which represent all 67 PA counties. Many of these scammers pretend to be calling on behalf of friends or family members who are having emergencies and need money sent to them. If an unknown person does call, it is important to never give any personal information, credit card information or your social security number to anyone you don't know over the phone.
