Murrysville consumer advocate to testify before Senate committee
Mary Bach, a nationally recognized consumer advocate from Murrysville, is fond of saying, “If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.”
An expert on fraud, Bach has been invited by Sen. Bob Casey to appear before the Senate Select Committee on Aging on March 7 to give testimony on scams targeting the elderly.
In her remarks, she will discuss scams and highlight the type of information and education that is most helpful to prevent people from being victimized.
Bach travels about 15,000 miles a year in Pennsylvania, giving more than 100 presentations to groups and organizations. She is the chairwoman of the AARP Pennsylvania Consumer Issues Task Force.
Casey is the ranking Democrat on the committee. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine chairs the committee.
