This Is Not A Scam!
Adults 60 and older are heavily and disproportionately affected by cyber scams. Cyber scams are specific types of fraud committed online, designed to exploit age-associated vulnerabilities, by offenders unknown to the victims, inciting fear, shame, and mental health problems, on top of the financial loss suffered. Individuals 60 and older are overrepresented among victims of cyber scams, both in number, and total financial loss. Yet, most cyber scams stay unreported. This interactive theatre piece creates an immersive experience that involves the audience in the storytelling. Interactive theatre is a highly useful tool to prevent and intervene in criminal activities such as cyber scams. Please join us and attend one or multiple performances to learn about scams!
