The state is hosting a series of seminars to help protect seniors from scams.

The Nevada State Contractors Board, the Nevada Health and Human Services Agency and the Senior Medicare Patrol Unit are working together on the seminars.

The workshops will highlight the types of scams criminals use to target seniors, tips on how people can protect themselves and how victims can report a problem to authorities.
