Scams against the elderly - A warning to our Arizona retirement community homeowners

Scams against the elderly - A warning to our Arizona retirement communities homeowners

Because of the warm Arizona climate, Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Festival and Sun City Grand Arizona (just to name a few) are popular destinations for baby boomers & seniors alike.  While many move here with "significant others" it is a fact of life that many of our residents eventually find themselves alone or isolated.

Unfortunately there are scammers or other criminals who have made a career out of taking advantage of our elders.  I came across this video from Arizona's Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and thought I would share it with you as a reminder to watch out for yourselves as well as others who live close by.
