Celebrating National Senior Citizens Day

Posted by Tompkins Bank of Castile on Aug 20, 2021 8:41:15 AM

On Saturday, August 21, we celebrate National Senior Citizens Day. On this day, we should all take a moment to let the seniors in our lives know how much we appreciate them. They are our parents, grandparents, and mentors, and they have set the foundation for much of the important work we do each and every day. One way we can honor our seniors is to do our part to protect them from scammers. Unfortunately, scammers target our nation’s seniors at alarming rates. We encourage you to talk to the seniors in your lives about telephone and letter scams. These scams are a form of elder abuse, and are all too common.
