REYNOLDSVILLE — In light of the prevalence of scams and financial abuse, particularly those targeted at senior citizens in the modern world, Jefferson County District Attorney Jeff Burkett is traveling to senior centers throughout the local area to speak about identifying, preventing and responding to fraud and other forms of elder abuse.

"People are always looking for opportunities to scam somebody, to swindle them, to do something to victimize them for their own gain," Burkett said at the first of his presentations on Tuesday morning at the Reynoldsville Foundry.
