BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Attorney General Ashley Moody recognized five outstanding volunteers as Super Senior Sleuths for contributions made to stopping scams against older Floridians.

Moody is honoring Seniors vs. Crime volunteers for the second year in a row and his year, due to COVID-19, she is presenting the awards virtually.

2020 Super Senior Sleuths for taking extraordinary steps to protect Floridians through Seniors vs. Crime include:

■ David Cunningham, volunteer at the Seniors vs. Crime Marion County office;

■ Gary Hinthorne, volunteer at the Seniors vs. Crime Cape Coral office;

■ Tomme Mayne, volunteer at the Seniors vs. Crime Flagler County office;

■ Betsy Robins, volunteer at the Seniors vs. Crime Navarre office; and

■ Jean Sporrier, volunteer at the Seniors vs. Crime Port St. Lucie office.

“I am overjoyed to be honoring these individuals for the work that they do to protect older Floridians. It is wonderful to see seniors using their golden years to give back to the community and fight for justice,” said Moody.

“I only wish I was able to honor them in person. After hearing about the extraordinary work they do in their communities, I know that all Floridians will agree, Florida’s seniors have a great team standing guard against fraud.”

Seniors vs. Crime is a special project of the Florida Attorney General’s Office run by seniors who volunteer time and talents to help victims of senior-targeted crimes. Seniors vs. Crime offices are located across Florida in more than 25 counties.

Whether it is investigating complaints, pursuing restitution for victims or providing advice for vulnerable seniors, the volunteers, or Senior Sleuths, help thousands of Floridians every year.

Last year, Senior Sleuths worked more than 1,900 cases of reported fraud, recovering $1,724,244 for seniors.

All five recipients are nominees for the 2019-2020 Advocate of the Year Award. Attorney General Moody will name the winner at the end of this week.
