Recently, I announced a new series of Operation S.A.F.E. financial workshops to help inform, empower and protect Florida's seniors from financial scams and fraud. Florida's seniors work their whole lives to save and build a nest egg for their families, and I want to make sure their finances are protected from anyone who might target them.
Statistics show that nearly one in five seniors has fallen victim to financial fraud. In order to combat this deceptive crime against seniors, I launched the statewide financial education initiative known as Operation S.A.F.E. to "Stop Adult Financial Exploitation" and the fraudsters who target Florida's seniors.
Our Operation S.A.F.E. 'Be Scam Smart' workshops and its accompanying website www.MyFloridaCFO.com/SAFE have already helped nearly 11,000 seniors protect themselves from becoming victims of financial fraud. Our workshops provide valuable resources and information such as:
Be Scam Smart workshops are open to seniors, family members and their caregivers. I encourage everyone to sign up for a workshop near you to learn how to protect your families' financial security.
