Senior fraud seminar:
Seniors will learn how to recognize and avoid fraud at a seminar from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at Sedgebrook Senior Living, 800 Audubon Way, Lincolnshire. The Illinois attorney general's office will be represented at the event, arranged by state Rep. Carol Sente. State law effective Jan. 1 reduces the threshold for a felony offense to $50,000 from $100,000 and requires those charged with financial exploitation of the elderly, but convicted of a lesser offense, to pay all or portion of the financial impact of the crime.
