Sheriff to speak on scams

On Friday, October 26, Waldo County Sheriff Jeff Trafton will speak at the Palermo Community Center about protecting your household from scams and fraud as the number of scam phone calls reaches epidemic proportions. AARP has estimated that by the end of next year, almost half of all cell phone calls will be scam calls.

Sheriff Trafton, is an ex-Marine and retired Maine State Police Lieutenant with 21 years of experience, not counting another stint as Belfast Chief of Police and a term as County Sheriff. In his spare time, Sheriff Trafton works with Aging Well, in Waldo County, as its Outreach Director. His experience in working against senior scams and elder abuse makes him a valuable resource for the more vulnerable sectors of our population.

Sheriff Trafton will speak and answer questions following a potluck supper at 6 p.m. on October 26 at the Palermo Community Center, just off Turner Ridge Rd. at Veterans Way. All are welcome – just bring a favorite dish to share with friends and neighbors. There is no charge, though donations are gratefully accepted. For additional directions or other questions, please call Connie Bellet at 993-2294.
