Twin Lakes Police Department Elderly Financial Scam Presentation
Jon Sutter Dcember 5, 2019
I attended an Elderly Financial Scam class put on by the Twin Lakes Police Department today at 1430. Capt Hall and Officer Ebert gave the class. It was very informative and I didn’t realize how many of our elderly were affected by this. The elderly person does not have to be family. It could be someone who is a Veteran or civilian.
I am trying to find out who the P.O.C. for Kenosha PD and Kenosha Co Sheriff’s Office is so we can get this information to our elderly. If you have information, let us know so we can post it. Maybe we can get a class here in town.
If the named Departments have problems getting a case put together, there is a retired Kenosha PD Det who works for the County of Kenosha Department of Human Services. Her name is Diane Walton, Financial Abuse Investigator. Her number is (262)-605-6619. The calls made to her are confidential and she can get information easier than the Police can because she is not required to have a warrant.
So if you see, hear, or suspect that an elderly person is being financially scammed, get ahold of KPD or Diane. She is more than happy to take your call.
Consider attending one of these classes out in the County or otherwise if you hear about one. Bring your elderly friends and relatives. They are free.
