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.

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.

State Senator Emil Jones III

JonesFloorShot4Chicago, IL – The west suburban developer ALM Resources is looking to acquire more than 320 acres of land in one of South Suburban Chicago’s most economically challenged villages, Robbins. The Village Robbins, which is in 14th Senate district represented by State Senator Emil Jones III, needs to acquire land that includes roughly 100 single-family homes that have housed families living in Robbins for generations.

ALM plans on redeveloping the land to create an industrial megaplex complete with a limestone quarry, an underground mine, asphalt and concrete factories and a therapy horse ranch, according to an agreement village officials quietly approved this year.

Currently, the project has been stalled because legislative action from state lawmakers is needed for the “quick-take” process to occur.

Senator Jones issued the following statement.

“I don’t intend to move forward with any legislation or support any measure brought before the General Assembly to forces the people of Robbins from their homes for this redevelopment project.” Jones said. “ALM stands to make billions from this project and only wants to give residents a fraction of their homes value.

The people of Robbins deserve a more transparent process that allows them to decide rather than a bureaucratic injunction. It’s important that we work together to ensure that the residents of Robbins aren’t displaced and the process isn’t undermined.”
