ModeratorBeth Silverman, Howard County Office of Consumer Protection

Today's topicPopular Scams and How to Avoid Them

While scams and fraud affect everyone, they pose a particular threat to seniors. Last year, more than 92,000 victims over the age of 60 reported losses of $1.7 billion to the FBI (a 74% increase in losses over the year before). During COVID, scam victimization has been fueled by quarantine-related increases in social isolation and loneliness among seniors. Join the discussion as Beth Silverman, from Howard County’s Office of Consumer Protection (OCP), provides tips on how to identify scams and how to avoid falling victim to the most prevalent ones.

Come to join us for our “Good Morning, Howard!”  zoom group.  We will be following the new schedule as listed below:

Wednesday at 9:00 AM

Please Note: Good Morning, Howard will be on hiatus in July and August and will return in September.


Our goal is to provide Howard County residents an opportunity to come together in a relaxed atmosphere, to meet with others, and to participate in the discussion/activities of Health and Wellness. Our content may include using technology to connect with family and friends, gardening, exercise, music, movies, jokes, popular websites, and healthy diet.

Participation is easy because driving is not required. This social program is for TVIH members and older adults from Howard County. 

Volunteers (TVIH members) will take turns to serve as the hosts of the GMH zoom meetings. The hosts will greet the participants, make introductions, and give the feedback/suggestions back to the membership committee.

Most people will join by using their computer, tablet or smartphone. To join, you need a zoom meeting link. The link will be emailed to you after you register. 

To Join Zoom Meeting by using a smartphone, dial 1-929-205-6099. You will be prompted to enter the meeting ID and the password.  If you are prompted to enter a personal ID, simply press the # sign.

The person using a phone can hear everyone and can talk.  He/she cannot be seen on other people’s screens.

Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
