    It’s the same old story, but this time it has a scary twist. Whenever disaster hits, greedy scammers and fraudsters begin to pounce on unsuspecting victims. Even during these strange times, nothing has changed. As the coronavirus spreads throughout our communities, disrupting our way of life and instilling fear among us, we must remain vigilant. If not, enterprising criminals will take advantage of that fear to perpetrate consumer fraud.

    Scammers are expert at shifting tactics and changing their message to catch consumers off guard. They are using phone, text, mail, email and fraudulent websites to tout everything from fake COVID-19 test kits to miracle cures. Their schemes also take advantage of the fact that medical supplies and equipment for combatting the virus, along with basic living essentials, have become difficult or nearly impossible to obtain.

    On Wednesday, July 15, Consumer Action will host an informative “COVID-19 Scams and Healthcare Fraud” webinar to address fraud that seeks to exploit consumer confusion and fear in the coronavirus era. The webinar will be led by Micki Nozaki, director of the Senior Medicare Patrol project at California Health Advocates.

    The webinar will cover:

    • Scams that are flourishing during the COVID-19 pandemic
    • COVID-19-related investment scams
    • How charitable giving scams work
    • Healthcare scams and fraud
    • Consumer warnings and safety tips
    • How to complain

    Believe it or not, you and your clients have an estate. Your estate is composed of everything you own—your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, iPhone, laptop and other personal possessions. And, as they say, no matter how large or how modest the estate, you can’t take it with you.

    The COVID-19 crisis has brought a keen awareness of our own mortality. Regardless of your age or health status, the pandemic has highlighted the importance of estate planning. Now is the time to make sure you have clearly documented your wishes for distribution of your assets and personal property; for your medical care in the event that you’re incapacitated; and for the disposition of your final remains. Not many people want to contemplate their death, but COVID-19 has reminded us that it’s important for everyone—young or old, sick or healthy—to think these things through.

    On Wednesday, Aug. 5, Consumer Action will host a webinar on “Estate Planning for Health Care, Finances and More During a Pandemic.” The webinar will be led by David Godfrey, a senior attorney to the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging.

    The webinar will cover:

    • Basic legal planning
    • The importance of putting what you want in writing
    • Why you should plan for long-term care
    • When a will is best
    • When a trust is better
    • Payable on death accounts
