The COVID-19 pandemic has created heightened fear and anxiety throughout the country. With social distancing, older adults, who are often most vulnerable, have become isolated. This creates the perfect environment for scammers. As a member of the Ohio Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) team, Lisa Dalga works to empower Medicare beneficiaries to protect their medical and personal identity and to detect and report Medicare fraud, errors and abuse. Lisa will discuss some recent scams, including those related to COVID-19, as well as warning signs of scams and how scammers may try to reach you. She will also give tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of scams and what to do if you do become a victim. Join us virtually, by computer or phone on Thursday, August 20 at 10-11 a.m., to learn how you can keep yourself safe.
