072414LL0119CHICAGO - State Senator Emil Jones (D-Chicago) continued his fight in the battle against consumer deception when he recently hosted a Senior Fraud and Prevention Workshop.

The event featured representatives from the Department on Aging and the Attorney General’s office, who gave presentations on how to identify fraudulent action on credit reports and in investment accounts, while also informing people on what to do when facing these issues.

“Our seniors are some of the most valued residents in our community,” Senator Jones said. “I want to ensure my community is aware of predatory financial practices and knows what steps to take if and when affected.”

One of Senator Jones most recent efforts to curb consumer exploitation was a measure that regulates the prepaid and reloadable credit card industry. The legislation ensures users of these cards are given full disclosure about fees and associated charges.

jonesatdesk1-1Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As you may know, the issue of firearms in Illinois has come before the General Assembly.  While this has always been a sensitive topic in our state, we must approach this with facts, caution and common-sense. 

On one hand, you have residents who wish to protect their homes, families and businesses with firearms.  On the other hand, you have residents who wish to see guns taken off the streets.  With such divergent opinions, it is important that legislators have the input of the residents they represent.

These are a few of the reasons that I wish to ask you participate in this online survey related to gun issues.

Please, take a few minutes to fill out the short survey below  and tell me your opinions on this important topic so I can better represent you in the Illinois General Assembly.

Sincerely,

State Senator Emil Jones III

Senator Emil Jones' 14th Legislative District Firearms Survey

SilverBeatWorkshopDear friend,

During my tenure with the General Assembly, I have continually worked to ensure that Illinoisans are not taken advantage of by misleading business practices.

Seniors, specifically, have long been targeted by these fraud and scams. In an effort to combat this growing issue, I am hosting a Senior Fraud Prevention Workshop.

In an effort to inform our senior community about deceptive financial practices, I am hosting a Senior Fraud Workshop. At this event, representatives from the Department on Aging and the Attorney General’s office will be on hand to discuss methods con artists are using and also to help with any issues attendees are currently experiencing.

Our seniors have given so much of their time and energy to developing younger generations. It’s our duty to ensure they are protected.

The will be on July 24, at 507 West 111th Street in Chicago from 10 a.m. until noon.

If you have any questions feel free to contact my district office at 773-995-7748. Also be sure to visit my website, www.SenatorEmilJones.com.

Thanks,

State Senator Emil Jones III
