In 2020 the Players as a group were writing a play about scams that particularly affect the senior population. Then we hit a snag – Covid 19. Writing a full length play via zoom turned out to be impossible. So instead, we wrote a number of scam vignettes. As soon as time allowed, we filmed three of them under the guidance of out Artistic Coordinator, Brianna Hamilton. We hope you enjoy them!

Romance Scam People online are not always who they say they are.
Door-to-Door Scam People who appear at your door may not be who they say they are.
Grandparent Scam Be careful when somone on the phone asks you for money.
Try to spot the SCAM:
S Stop, take a breath. Fraudsters prey on feelings of urgency.
C Consider. Did they call you or did they contact them?
A Ask. Ask a trusted friend or family member to take a look at an email or tell them about a call.
M Money. Did that email, phone call, or text ask you for money or offer you money?
Stay SCAM alert.
