Learning session to help protect seniors from fraud

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

The Minnesota Department of Commerce wants to make sure seniors don't fall victim to common scams and fraud. 

The office has launched a Hang Up on Fraud! initiative, hosting free public forums across the state to inform those that might be vulnerable to losing money through false threats. 

Thursday, the Rochester Public Library hosts a session to give older Minnesotans a better idea at the warning signs to watch out for. 

According to the Department of Commerce, one in every five people older than 65 have been victimized by a financial swindle. 

Thursday's event starts at 12:30 p.m.
