Phone Scam Alert:
A Warning for Seniors in Hampton Roads
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia (SSSEVA) wants to warn the public about a phone scam seeming to target seniors and their caregivers in Hampton Roads. We've gotten multiple reports from seniors and family members throughout the region who received these phone calls over the last couple of weeks. The callers, all calling from a 757-461-exchange with rolling last four digits, identify themselves as “Senior Services,” and then try to entice you to buy life insurance.
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia wants to make it clear that our organization does not sell life insurance and will never call anyone to try to sell products of any kind.
What If They Call Me?
If you encounter a suspected phone scam, hang up immediately on the caller, write down the caller’s phone number to share with law enforcement, and then notify your local police department's consumer fraud unit.
You can report such incidents to the Virginia Attorney General's Office:

Hello, there! Welcome to my blog. I will use this blog as a platform for my writing. I will write about topics in the legal world, certainly, as well as everything else under the sun, because I have many interests (and viewpoints). All views expressed in this blog, unless otherwise noted, are mine alone. One of my interests is music--my wife believes that I should go on "Beat Shazam" because I know so many songs--and I will be, from time to time, analyzing song lyrics and how they relate to the legal world.
