Murrysville resident and consumer advocate Mary Bach poses with Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey following Wednesday's hearing by the Senate Special Committee on Aging on scams targeting the elderly.

Murrysville consumer advocate Mary Bach will join U.S. Sen. Bob Casey for an interactive “tele-town-hall” meeting July 9 to discuss ways to recognize and avoid scams and fraud.

Bach, who is the chairwoman of the AARP's Pennsylvania Consumer Issues Task Force, was among 12 senior citizens recognized at the state Capitol last month for their work against frauds and scams. She and others were honored by Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann for their work with the Campaign for Wise and Safe Investing, a collaboration between the state and the AARP.

Consumers will be able to call in at 6 p.m. July 9 for Bach and Casey's town-hall forum.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
