The program will be held at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 1343 National Road, Wheeling WV in the downstairs Fellowship Hall.

"Fraud is a big problem in many areas of our lives today. People call us claiming to be IRS representatives, Microsoft technicians, and banking agents. Others call to try to scam us saying they are from our credit card companies or from Social Security. Medicare is no different. People and businesses will try to bill your Medicare for services you did not receive. These scams costs millions of dollars and compromises the Medicare system."

Come to the program and learn how to fight Medicare fraud and learn what to do if you’ve been a victim. The program is free and open to all who are interested!

Reservations are required for this program. Reserve your seat by Wednesday, April 27 at 12 noon. Call 304 243-0996 for reservations and more information.
