Lawmakers introduce new bill to target scammers who prey on seniors
ST. PAUL -- Scammers who convince older Minnesotans to send money to people they think they are helping are targeted by a new bill.
“These scams continue to be a growing problem and we need to do all that we can to combat them,” said Rep. Joe Atkins, DFL-Inver Grove Heights. “This
legislation is a great step forward and while it’s simple, it will make a huge difference in preventing these types of scams.”
