48th District State Senator Andy Manar is partnering with Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Pana Mayor Don Kroski to hold a workshop for area senior citizens to inform them on the latest frauds and scams targeting seniors. The workshop will be held at the Pana American Legion Hall on Monday from 10:30 to noon.
Kroski says as a senior himself, he knows there are plenty of people out there trying to scam older people. He says the best way to make sure people don’t become victims is to keep them informed.
Kroski says there are people targeting seniors everywhere, including in Pana.
The workshop is free for anyone who would like to attend. Kroski encourages people to get to the American Legion Hall early for refreshments before the workshop begins.
