Elder Law of Michigan Offers Consumer Fraud Prevention Project and a New Hotline for Assistance for Gay,  Lesbian,  Bisexual and Transgender Older Adults 

 

In a project funded by the AARP Foundation, Elder Law of Michigan is urging consumers to become better educated about consumer fraud and to help others identify fraudulent practices.. Throughout this year, ELM will use volunteers to reach out to more than 100,000 known and potential victims of telemarketing and other types of fraud. Volunteers will contact older adults across the country to warn them about telephone, mail, and internet scams and follow up with prevention tips and information.  In addition, ELM is encouraging anyone who is aware of a suspicious or fraudulent practice to contact them at info@elderslaw.org.

ELM is also offering a new hotline for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender adults to deal with the special legal problems members of these communities might encounter including issues regarding cohabitation and estate planning.  There are no age or income restrictions to use the service and  it is free of charge. The hotline number is 1-877-GLBT-LAW.
