Seniors 60 and over are often the target of cyber criminals. Why? They are usually financially secure, may experience memory issues and tend to be more trusting. According to AARP, scams that started on Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites doubled year over year in 2021, leading to $770 million in consumer losses. How can you avoid being scammed?

Join our second roundtable discussion on Tuesday, May 10, 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., Janice Ancrum Senior Life Center, 1901 Island Walk Way, Fernandina Beach, as we discuss how to outsmart the scammers. Our next monthly roundtable discussion will be held on Tuesday, June 14.

Each class is free to members, $5 for non-members. For registration, membership and payment information, visit or contact our Receptionist at 904-261-0701. These roundtable sessions are sponsored by NCCOA’s Advisory Council.
