Legislator Drucker Partners with Nassau County Police Department’s Community Affairs Division to Host Senior Scam Prevention Seminar

(WOODBURY, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) recently partnered with the Nassau County Police Department’s Community Affairs division on Tuesday, Oct. 18 to host a seminar at the Woodbury Gardens Clubhouse to educate seniors and protect them from predatory scammers.
During the event, more than 70 attendees were informed about the most common techniques that criminals use to steal information and funds from senior citizens and received valuable resources to protect themselves and their families from scams and financial exploitation.
“My office has received dozens of calls recalling the horror stories that families have endured at the hands of unscrupulous criminals who have used elaborate schemes and scare tactics to steal tremendous sums of money from senior citizens,” Legislator Drucker said. “I thank officer Eugene Messmer for sharing his expertise with the community and empowering our residents to protect themselves, and applaud Woodbury Gardens Civic President Ellen Golann for hosting this very important workshop.”
