FEATURED EVENTS




SCAM ALERT! 

This seems to be a particularly active time for fraud, and seniors are a particularly popular target. Numerous email and telephone schemes have been reported to us at PSRC, and can involve someone posing as a bank or loan officer, or an IRS or police agent, trying to get you to part with money - often hefty sums. 

Actual bank officials, IRS agents and legitimate professionals do not communicate in this way with citizens. Beware of anyone or any email promising a refund or
threatening to take an action if you don't first pay a sum of money or provide an account number or PIN. Don't hesitate to contact your bank or other personal provider to check the legitimacy of a suspicious call or email, and feel free to report the source address or telephone number to the police.



NOTICE:

If you call, please be prepared to give your name, telephone number,
email address if you have one, and a credit card
(which will not be charged until you are confirmed to attend.)
Thank you.
