Sheriff’s Office & Library Team Up to Help Protect Elderly from Scams

ASHEBORO N.C. – The elderly are especially vulnerable to fraud, scams, and exploitation, and with a lifetime of savings in the bank, they are prime targets. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and Public Library will be presenting programs for citizens about scams/frauds and ways to prevent them and protect yourself when using the internet.  

H.E.L.P.S. or Helping Elders Learn to Prevent Scams is an outreach program by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Community Outreach, in conjunction with the Randolph County Public Library System’s Digital Services Librarian.

Two sessions have been scheduled for August 16th at the Asheboro Public Library, located at 201 Worth St., Asheboro, at 9 am, and again at 2 pm.

For future sessions, check the Sheriff’s Office “News” on their website, the Randolph County Library calendar.
