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
