Listen to this article

LOS ANGELES – Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones and the newly-elected California Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager hosted an event over the weekend in South Los Angeles focusing on identifying and combatting senior scams. The meeting was an opportunity for Los Angeles residents to learn about what can be done to fight senior scams and what resources are available to assist them.

 “In a time when Trump is featured in every headline, it’s important to make sure that the real struggles and issues that local constituents are facing every day are being heard and addressed,” Rep. Bass said. “Earlier this year, I hosted an event and heard story after story about scams from seniors as well as from people who have older parents or relatives experiencing scam attempts. In addition to introducing legislation to recognize the prevalence of these scams, I hosted this event to be sure that constituents in my district are getting the help that they need in order to fight these scams.
