Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe says current scams often target seniors and veterans.

In support of Missouri’s seniors and veterans, Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe is encouraging individuals and family members to utilize resources he has provided for health information on COVID-19 and reporting related scams.  

“Unfortunately, during challenging times there will be those who seek to prey upon the vulnerability or misfortune of others. Often their targets are seniors and veterans. I join Attorney General Schmitt and others encouraging Missourians to take care, and look out for, one another,” Kehoe said.  

Kehoe added, “It is both an honor and a privilege to advocate for Missouri’s seniors and veterans.”
