'Live From the Newsroom' protects seniors from scammers tonight

Tonight ‘Live From the Newsroom’ is going to bat for senior citizens.

On Monday staff writer Rose Quinn detailed the growing ways in which con men are targeting what they believe are easy marks, gullible senior citizens. You can read that story here.

Tonight we will follow up with a special panel discussion on our live-stream Internet broadcast.

We’ll be joined by District Attorney Jack Whelan, Assistant D.A. Erica Parham, who is specializing in senior crime; CID Chief Joe Ryan, Ridley Township Detective Sgt. Charles Palo and Lori Holcombe, a certified victim advocate with the county office of Senior Victim Services.

Who’s where you come in. If you have a question about what you might think is a shaky deal, this is your chance to ask the experts. Email your question to me at editor@delcotimes.com and I will put it to our panel.

Then tune in tonight at 7 on DelcoTimes.com and take part in our live chat during the show.

Crimes against seniors are becoming a bigger problem each day, and the technology that we swim in every day is actually creating new ways for shysters to rip off their victims.

This is your chance to fight back.

Take part in the conversation. Join us tonight! See you on the Internet!

Thanks for highlighting this growing problem, Phil. Your editorials in the Times are meaningful, timely, and lets me read someone who tends to value other opinions besides his own.
