Lt. Governor André Bauer to Unveil Senior Shield at Press Conference Friday

(Columbia, SC) – On November 14, 2008, Lt. Governor André Bauer will be traveling across the state with Josefina Carbonell, the Assistant Secretary of Aging at the US Department of Health and Human Services, to launch Senior Shield, an innovative program designed to help seniors feel more confident in their business decisions.

The Lt. Governor will hold a series of press conferences in Columbia, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Florence, Greenville and Spartanburg.

Senior Shield will use a patent-pending process to vet businesses through 30 national, state and local data bases and provide background checks on individual contractors and employees over a seven year time frame to give consumers a tool to protect their families. 

The ultimate goal is for Senior Shield to be a national model for consumer protection and offer recognition to businesses that operate in an ethical manner. 

“Since I started my campaign against senior fraud in May, I have been disturbed by the number of seniors falling victim to unscrupulous business deals.  

Our senior consumers and their families deserve a way to check businesses out before they write a check to a stranger, Senior Shield will do just that,” Bauer said.

Recruitment of South Carolina businesses and professionals for the Senior Shield directory has already begun, for more information about Senior Shield, visit http://www.scseniorshield.com or call toll-free, 1-877-723-3771.
