Seniors ‘may look old but we are not stupid’

To the editor:

Seniors are often warned about phone and internet scams. I found out that scams are performed locally in T.C.

My new license plate and tag (birthday in May) arrived in the mail. I tried getting the screws out by myself, but they were rusted on. At the (dealer in Traverse City) I was told this job would cost me $500. At (another dealer) I was quoted 1 hour’s work and $52.95. I went to Clarke’s Service on Bingham Road and it took 1 minute and cost me a total of $10.00 to change those plates.

As the saying goes ... it pays to shop around.

My advice to businesses is that seniors may look old but we are not stupid.

Thank you!
