Authorities in Macomb County are hosting a program designed to show senior citizens how to avoid becoming victim to computer-related crimes.

A free presentation is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Romeo District Court by the Macomb Area Computer Enforcement Unit. It will cover identity theft, fraud and scams.

Sheriff Anthony Wickersham says that "many seniors feel vulnerable when it comes to technology and do not know how to protect themselves when using the internet."

Wickersham's office is working with Judge Denis LeDuc and Magistrate Jennifer Andary on the program which is open to Macomb County residents age 50 and older.
