Posted: Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:30 am
The FCCG had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Central Florida Elder Abuse event in Oviedo this past week. This event drew organizations from all over the state to raise awareness about elder abuse. The FCCG was able to disseminate problem and compulsive gambling materials to seniors and other communtiy resource organizations in an effort to educate them on the dangers that can arise when gambling becomes a problem. One of the key points the FCCG brought to the event was that older adults are often targets of scams and cons involving lotteries and sweepstakes and to always contact authorities if they think they may have been taken advantage of.
