Any seniors in your family that live in Genesee County? If so you should read this story.Genesee County Commissioner Archie Bailey is warning area residents to be aware of a potential scam targeting senior citizens. Seniors are being warned to check out any company offering water or sewer line repair from the street to their home. The cost of the that repair can be as high as $6,000. Some of the companies doing this are offering to sell seniors insurance to cover the costs of such repairs. It has been discovered that their letter states  if residents give them their checking account number, the company will take the monthly premium right out of their account.
