HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Wolf says he wants his administration to do more to protect people from lending scams and scams that target the elderly, and to help people save for retirement and get financial education.

Wolf said Thursday that the efforts will be coordinated by the state Department of Banking and Securities.

As part of it, the state will start distributing information warning motorists to be wary of companies that offer cash loans in exchange for car titles.

The state also will provide information to health care and legal professionals to help them prevent scams that target the elderly.

The banking department also plans to coordinate an information exchange between more than a dozen Pennsylvania state agencies that have not previously shared their financial education and consumer outreach programs.
