About this event
Scammers are expert at shifting tactics and changing their message to catch consumers off guard. They are using phone, text, mail, email and fraudulent websites to tout everything from fake COVID-19 test kits to miracle cures. Their schemes also take advantage of the fact that medical supplies and equipment for combatting the virus are difficult to obtain.
On September 23, 2020, 11 a.m. Pacific, California Health Advocates Senior Medicare Patrol and the California Caregiver Resource Centers will host an informative “COVID-19 Scams and Healthcare Fraud” webinar to help family caregivers address fraud that seeks to exploit seniors and persons with disabilities. The webinar will be led by Micki Nozaki, director of the California Senior Medicare Patrol project.
This webinar will cover:
- Scams that are flourishing during the COVID-19 pandemic
- Healthcare scams and fraud
- Consumer warnings and safety tips
- How to detect and report scams and fraud
This free webinar is sponsored by California Senior Medicare Patrol & California Caregiver Resource Centers.
