The Bridgewater Police Department informed us that scams are on the rise, especially in this area. Detective Balboni reached out to let us know that since December, they have had over $200,000 reported stolen from Bridgewater senior residents due to "elderly scams". The Police Department welcomes questions and reports of all types, but especially in senior scams. Please call the police, even if you have a suspicion or gut feeling that something is not right.
Bridgewater Police Detectives will be at the Senior Center for our St. Patrick’s Day luncheon on the 15th to talk with you and hand out materials. Until then, read this brochure from the FBI to learn how to make your community safer by not only preventing internet fraud, but also reporting it.
