(OPEN):
THIS WEEK [JUNE 15TH TO 21ST] MARKS "PROTECT WEEK"--A TIME TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT "PROTECTING OLDER AMERICANS FROM FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION".  AND, TO HELP MARYLANDERS FIGHT FRAUD, CONSUMER-PROTECTION GROUPS AND STATE-OFFICIALS ALIKE ARE LAUNCHING A NEW PUBLIC-AWARENESS CAMPAIGN.  HANK GREENBERG IS THE STATE-DIRECTOR OF "A-A-R-P MARYLAND"--ONE OF THE CAMPAIGN'S MEMBERS...

(GREENBERG):
"
THE 'FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION' SAYS THAT OVER 46-THOUSAND CASES OF FRAUD WERE REPORTED BY MARYLANDERS, IN 2019--WITH LOSSES TOTALING MORE THAN 27-MILLION DOLLARS.  THESE CRIMINALS BECOME MORE SOPHISTICATED, EVERY DAY.  AND, THEY OFTEN JUST HAPPEN TO BE FAMILY, FRIENDS, OR CAREGIVERS.  COLLABORATION AMONGST GOVERNMENT-AGENCIES, LAW-ENFORCEMENT, SOCIAL-WORKERS, BANKS, AND COMMUNITY-AGENCIES IS ESSENTIAL TO PREVENT FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION--THROUGHOUT MARYLAND."

(CLOSE):
WEDNESDAY-EVENING [JUNE 17TH], GREENBERG WILL BE AMONG THE PARTICIPANTS IN A STATEWIDE TELECONFERENCE THAT AIMS TO TEACH MARYLANDERS HOW TO IDENTIFY, PREVENT, AND REPORT FRAUD.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TELECONFERENCE--AND ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN ITSELF--VISIT "PROTECT-WEEK"-DOT-ORG.
