"Representatives from the Erie County prosecutor's office will highlight ways for seniors to aviod crimes, including identity theft and scams."

Really? Is the prosecutor's office also going to highlight how easy corrupt Erie County will make it for attorneys and financial institutions to criminally defraud them at the end of their lives when they're totally incompetent? Are they going to tell them no matter how good they have things set up those dirt-bags can change everything? Are they going to tell them about forged power of attorneys, forged Wills, internal criminal changes to their contracts, fraudulent transfers of their property, and even Medicaid fraud pulled off at their expense?

Hypocrites. I'm surprised that Erie County courthouse isn't being haunted. (somebody said it more than likely is)
