<p>


			In 1989, some of Florida’s most effective crime fighters were 
			unleashed through the creation of the Attorney General’s Seniors vs. 
			Crime Project. This Project, sponsored by my Office, allows seniors 
			to be actively involved in their own and their younger citizens' protection.</p>
            <p>The volunteers, known as Senior Sleuths, (1) serve as eyes and ears 
			to inform my office of current issues affecting seniors, (2) educate 
			the public about scams and frauds, (3) assist law enforcement as actors 
			with undercover operations and (4) manage consumer cases referred by 
			my office or requested of the Project by other sources. These crime 
			fighters are responsible for recovering millions of dollars for 
			seniors who were intentional or unintentional victims of con artists 
			or honest businesses.</p>
            <p>Volunteers work throughout the state in locations known as 
			Offices. More than 3,000 Senior Sleuth volunteers provide important assistance to the 
			state's crime fighting effort from those Offices or from the comfort 
			of their homes. 
            </p>
<p>Unethical businesses and individuals may believe that their senior 
            target is helpless, when, in fact, the "target" may be working for 
            the Attorney General or local law enforcement in an undercover role.&nbsp; 
Few volunteer opportunities permit this level of involvement for seniors in 
their own protection.</p>
            <p>I am proud to be a partner with these 
            outstanding citizens. Please give the Seniors vs. Crime Project a 
            chance to help with your consumer related complaint by calling 
            1-800-203-3099 or request help through their web site.</p>Pam Bondi<br>Attorney General
