  • Learn about a variety of mail scams targeting older adults

  • Receive tips and tools to protect personal information while away from home

  • Learn how to report incidents of potential elder financial abuse 

  • Have the opportunity to ask questions directly to industry experts from the U.S. Postal Service and members of Apple Bank’s Fraud team
