It's an issue that may never go away and continues to be a problem locally.
Scam attempts continue to bombard the local population, especially senior citizens. DeWitt County Friendship Center Executive Director, Sissy Leggett explains they have an upcoming program about protecting yourself from identity theft and scams.
While the program later this month will talk about some of these things, Leggett reminds residents organizations like the IRS or Social Security never contact you over the phone. She also encourages never giving out personal information over the phone either.
That program with the East Central Illinois Agency on Aging is May 25.
