Elder abuse takes many forms, including -financial exploitation. Cybercrime targeting older adults has risen at a particularly alarming rate, according to the FBI. In 2021, Kentucky residents 60 and older lost nearly $12.8 million to cybercrime—a 215 percent increase from 2020, FBI data shows.

The Scam Jam is open to the public and will include a free lunch. Registration is Required. For more details and to register, go to: aarp.cvent.com/kysummerscamjam
