Scam Prevention Project

The East Bay Community Law Center’s Scam Prevention Project was founded in response to the high volume of seniors seeking out legal solutions after falling victim to scams. Scammers disproportionately target seniors, low-income people, and immigrants. Nationally, one-fifth of seniors fall victim to scams each year, resulting in a loss to consumers of between $3 billion and $30 billion each year.

Our Scam Prevention Project helps bring community legal services and preventive education to communities who are heavily targeted for financial scams. The project has been positively received at East Bay senior centers and senior affordable housing agencies, by service providers and attendees.

Below are resources for (1) service providers, who can facilitate scam prevention workshops in their local communities and (2) the public to prevent scams from happening. We hope that the below resources are helpful.
