"Scams Seniors Face Today"
Our next EAL Radio Show, Episode 430, September 23, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT is bringing a program of a serious topic that is happening in today's society and facing senior members. Every day we hear of terrible scams that take place and Senior citizens who are targeted with telephone scams. Criminals target elderly seniors in several different ways; scams on home repair, investment, IRS scams, even portraying a family member to get money sent or information to get into their financial records. So many other cons targeting older people and some guidelines to avoid them.
Who do Con artists target? They target seniors who are lonely, bedridden, or can't get out, widows and even widowers. The scam is to find those who may be the most venerable and shower them with kindness, or appeal to get their empathy and to gain their confidence. Don't let this happen to you! This is a subject no one wants to think about happening, but we on the EAL Radio Show care enough about our Eastern Family to talk on this issue and the common types that members need awareness to avoid it happening to them.
Listen to our broadcast to hear more on this topic and ways to avoid scams by calling 213-816-1611 on September 23, 2019 at 7:00 P. M. EDT. Join our discussion or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to our www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

Malaysia Flight MH370 Mystery
Last year an article written by Mary Grady Monday, July 30, 2018 on the MH370o reported and I quote:
- "That it remains inconclusive a mystery. "Despite an international effort to discover why Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 crashed in March 2014. The accident investigation team has concluded in a report released Monday, July 30, 2018 that it was “unable to determine the real cause for disappearance.” The team said they were hampered by the lack of evidence, since the airplane has never been found. About two dozen pieces of wreckage have washed ashore in southeast Africa, but only three have been confirmed as part of the lost B777.
- The last article and TV announcement was an article in "The Atlantic" Magazine archived in July 2019 print edition, had the headline "Good Night. Malaysian Three-Seven-Zero."
Listen to hear more by calling us on 213-816-1611 to talk with us personally, TBD at 7:00 P.M. EDT.
