Larimer County Offices, Courts, District Attorney, and Landfill are closed Monday, May 27, 2019 for Memorial Day. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.

It starts with a phone call or email. Criminals contact unsuspecting older adults claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service asking to send money owed for back taxes or their from local law enforcement demanding payment to avoid immediate arrest.

Older adults are scammed every year out of millions of dollars in property, assets, and cash by criminals preying on older adults offering phony home repair, investment scams, and other cons.

Crimes against older adults continue to rise as criminals become more sophisticated and find new ways to target older adults by stealing their identity and personal information.

The Larimer County Office on Aging will host a free fraud protection forum from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on April 23, 2019, at the Chilson Senior Center, 700 E. 4th St., Loveland, CO.

The forum will show what seniors and caregivers need to know about some of the most common types of fraud scams targeting seniors and how to avoid them.

A panel of experts from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Adult Protection Services, and local law enforcement agencies will discuss this important topic.

Contact the Larimer County Office on Aging at [970] 498-7750. Registration is not required.
