It has come to the City’s attention that in other municipalities, seniors have received phone calls from individuals claiming to be from “the senior center” asking for personal information. We also were alerted by one of our homebound delivered meal recipients that they received a phone call claiming they owed money for their delivered meals.
We would like to take this time to remind you - The City of Peekskill’s Department of Senior Services will never call members of the community asking for personal information or money. If you receive this phone call, please hang up. Remember, legitimate phone calls from Peekskill Senior Services will read as “City of Peekskill” on your caller ID.
A list of common scams against seniors is available from Westchester County for your reference.
