Scam Jam works to inform older citizens
LEWISTON, ID - Have you ever feared being a victim of fraud or know someone who's already been victimized?

Tonight a statewide program visited Lewiston to tell people about a specific group of scams.

Scam Jam works to inform older citizens, their families and caregivers about frauds and abuses that target seniors. Idaho’s Attorney General, Lewiston’s Chief of Police and the Director of the Idaho Department of Insurance are just a few key-note speakers at this year’s event.

"Anybody that's a senior or a caregiver and wants to know about some of the local scams going on out there,” said LC Rotary Club President Jacqui Gilbert. “And some tools to prevent those affecting you. This is a great conference for you to be included in."

The free, all-day event will be held on Thursday, April 3rd at the LCSC Williams Conference Center and will include a morning snack as well as lunch provided by the sponsors.
