Consumer-conscious senior citizens in Florida have the opportunity to volunteer their time and energy to help the Attorney General's Office fight back against con artists who typically prey on their number. They can become part of a statewide program known as "Seniors vs. Crime."
Formed in 1989 by the Attorney General, Vern Thornton and the American Association of Retired Persons, the program uses retired citizens not only to educate Floridians on consumer fraud but also to help in some consumer investigations. In addition, the volunteers regularly conduct seminars on how seniors can protect themselves from becoming crime victims.
For program information, consumer inquiries, consumer complaints, or to schedule a Consumer Seminar, please call 1-800-203-3099 or visit our web site at www.seniorsvscrime.com.
