News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – “The Government remains committed to strengthening areas of legislation and policy that will positively enhance the lives of our seniors; as we understand we all are progressing towards becoming a senior one day,” said the Minister of Social Development and Seniors, Tinee Furbert.

“As the world is rapidly changing, technology continues to advance, and I know firsthand how many seniors feel overwhelmed and a bit intimidated at times.

“With the rise in technology use, online scams seek to exploit seniors financially. We wish to remind those who feel suspicious about scams or have been a victim of a financial scam to contact the Bermuda Police Service and your Bank at your earliest opportunity. The earlier the bank is informed, the greater the chance they have to recover your funds.”
