Idaho Falls Senior Health & Safety Fair

Leland Faux at the Senior Health & Safety Fair

I attended the 2nd annual Senior Health & Safety Fair on May 12, 2018. I was there to promote consumer protection rights for seniors. Under Idaho’s Consumer Protection Act, senior are given enhanced protections. Specifically, the law states that seniors to suffer certain damages as the result of consumer protection violations are entitled to statutory damages of $15,000 or three-times the actual damages (whichever is greater) in addition to any other damages. This is an important law to designed to deter people from taking advantage of seniors in our community.

I was able to meet a lot of people and make some good connections. If you would like to see the materials I handed out at the fair, use the links below:
