Bennett SeniorFraud Flyer


DANVILLE – To inform and educate local residents on the latest frauds and scams, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is hosting a fraud prevention seminar with Attorney General Kwame Raoul’s office.

The free informational seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 20 at 3 p.m. at the Danville Public Library located at 319 N. Vermilion St. in Danville.

“Scammers are getting more and more creative over the phone and internet, and they’re targeting older Illinoisans’ wallets,” Bennett said. “Join me next month and learn how to protect yourself.”

Bennett has asked the attorney general’s office to discuss how to avoid imposter scams, robocalls, payment mechanism and identity theft, as well as how to check credit reports and file a consumer fraud complaint.

Bennett recommends people call his office at 217-442-5252 to RSVP.
