The Florida Attorney General's Office has a stern message. If you plan on ripping off Florida’s seniors, think twice.
Attorney General Charlie Crist opened the state's 25th Seniors Versus Crime store front at the Tallahassee Senior Center. This is the first program in the state to have the cooperation of the police chief and sheriff.
"If you've been a victim of a fraud, you can come by here, we encourage you to come on by to see if we can help you recover any money,” says Senior Versus Crime Regional Director Joe Stein.
Seniors Versus Crime has recovered $3.9 million in cash for Florida’s seniors and solved 78 percent of its cases. The program is ready to bring its success to the Big Bend, and so are the new Senior Sleuths.
"I personally would not be in this program and I don't think anybody here would be in this program also if they didn't feel dedicated to help the seniors,” says Tallahassee Senior Versus Crime Manager Joe Adelman.
One phone call or one visit is all it will take and one of the Senior Sleuths will investigate your case.
The Tallahassee store front will be open Tuesday’s from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Thursday’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The phone number is 850-891-4044.
