Dear Members and Guests,
Please join us for our monthly meeting on Thursday February 20th, where we’ll welcome Kristina Warcholski. Kristina Warcholski is currently the Consumer and Community Mediation Coordinator for the Marin County District Attorney’s Office. She will be speaking on “How to Prevent Elder Scams and Exploitation.” Summary of talk: We’ll talk about why seniors fall prey to rip-off schemes and discuss current ways that Marin County seniors are being targeted. We’ll look at how to prevent fraud by education and intervention.
Kristina Warcholski heads a group of mediators who help those with consumer and community complaints resolve their disputes through mediation. Her community outreach responsibilities include speaking to civic groups and participating in consumer and senior-related functions throughout the county. Kristina is a licensed attorney with over 30 years of legal experience, including working for many years as a deputy district attorney in Santa Clara County.
