Pam Bondi recruits Fla. seniors at Tallahassee rally

TALLAHASSEE — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi appealed for help from the Sunshine State’s senior citizens Tuesday for help in stopping cyber-criminals trying to separate the elderly from their money.

During a rally in the Capitol plaza, Bondi appeared with other members of Florida’s Cabinet – Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam – to ask senior citizens to act as the “eyes and ears” of law enforcement by reporting possible scams.

“I need you to help me …  to bust these rings that prey on senior citizens,” Bondi said. “We’re tired of it.”

“We want to recruit  you as  volunteers throughout the state to help seniors.”

Bondi also cautioned seniors to improve their own security practices, such as by taking greater care to secure their computer passwords, and never give out personal or financial information to solicitors.

“If something sounds too good to be true,” she said, “it usually is.”

The rally was part of the state Department of Elder Affairs Ambassadors for Aging Day at the Capitol, an opportunity for “elders and elder advocates from throughout the state to showcase special contributions of older adults.”
Top sponsors included Florida Blue, AT&T, FPL, Covenant Hospice, Florida Telecommunications Relay Inc. and Larry J. Overton Associates.
