Unfortunately, people are swindled out of billions of dollars each year. The Senior Money Project was created by CENTS (Consumer Education and Training Services) in order to help seniors and people of all ages identify and protect themselves against scams and fraud. CENTS is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization that teaches individuals how to improve their financial health.
