Our mission: The Seniors vs. Crime Project prevents crime and fraud, mediates civil disputes, and assists the Florida Attorney General with his mission through the work of Florida senior volunteers. We like to prevent. We prefer to prevent and not have a victim. But if we have a victim, we like to right the wrong and get the money back. Most of the folks coming to us are seniors, but being elderly is not a requirement to get our free help. All the work is done by senior Putnam volunteers we train. Our volunteers are like happy junkyard dogs when they get hold of someone who has cheated a senior. They don’t let go. We know there are two sides to every story so we try to be fair to all parties in our cases. There is no problem too large or too small. Cheated out of five or five hundred dollars is the same to us. There is no charge for our help. If you feel someone has taken advantage of you, there IS something you can do.
You will be asked to gather all your documentation (i.e. receipts, work orders, contracts, etc.) and bring or mail or email them to our office so we can review your case. When you leave, you will take your originals with you. A Senior Team Member volunteer will be assigned to your case. Every attempt will be made to resolve your case through informal mediation with the other party. And there is no cost for our services. Every year we return about one million dollars to seniors across Florida. We like that. We handle civil matters. Any case we determine is really criminal is immediately turned over to a law enforcement agency for appropriate action. We help you with that process and make it easy. If you are old, like us, and you like righting wrongs, or helping to put bad people in jail or taking money out of cheater’s pockets and putting it back where it came from, you should volunteer to help. This could be your thing.
