With the holiday season being upon us, scams are seeming to ramp up as well.  State Senator Bob Casey says this time of year people are susceptible to scam artists.  He also says that during the holidays, fake emergency calls increase.  These calls urge senior citizens to send money to charities that don’t exist.

So many people are in the giving spirit this time of year, just make sure you only send money to people you know and can verify the identity of.
