Pam Bondi

In 1989, some of Florida’s most effective crime fighters were unleashed through the creation of the Attorney General’s Seniors vs. Crime Project. This Project, sponsored by my Office, allows seniors to be actively involved in their own and their younger citizens' protection.

The volunteers, known as Senior Sleuths, (1) serve as eyes and ears to inform my office of current issues affecting seniors, (2) educate the public about scams and frauds, (3) assist law enforcement as actors with undercover operations and (4) manage consumer cases referred by my office or requested of the Project by other sources. These crime fighters are responsible for recovering millions of dollars for seniors who were intentional or unintentional victims of con artists or honest businesses.

Volunteers work throughout the state in locations known as Offices. More than 3,000 Senior Sleuth volunteers provide important assistance to the state's crime fighting effort from those Offices or from the comfort of their homes.

Unethical businesses and individuals may believe that their senior target is helpless, when, in fact, the "target" may be working for the Attorney General or local law enforcement in an undercover role.  Few volunteer opportunities permit this level of involvement for seniors in their own protection.

I am proud to be a partner with these outstanding citizens. Please give the Seniors vs. Crime Project a chance to help with your consumer related complaint by calling 1-800-203-3099 or request help through their web site.

 Attorney General Pam Bondi News Release
 
 New Scam Alert   I have gotten 2 calls in the past hour on my cell phone in which a man with a middle eastern accent threatens me by saying that I or my "attorney of record" must contact him "the second the message is received" about a financial matter.  He goes on to say that if I don't return his call, "as the situation unfolds on you, may God save your soul."  Of course I knew it was a scam and googling confirmed that.  Apparently returning the call results in more threats according to what I have read.  I just wanted to somehow make this information public so that no one gets duped into calling this scammer and losing money due to fear.  The number of the caller is 917-460-4116.
