Apr 23 - Top frauds and scams presentation
Posted on Wednesday, March 13, 2019
On April 23, 2019 at 1 pm at the Candia Town Hall, AARP will host a presentation on top frauds and scams. The presentation is sponsored by the Candia Police Department.
New frauds and scams seem to crop up weekly. The Federal Trade Commission reports nearly 25 million Americans are the victims of frauds and scams. Every year! And a recent AARP survey of the 50+ population in New Hampshire shows that three out of four citizens said protecting themselves against consumer fraud was extremely or very important to them
That is why AARP New Hampshire has organized a volunteer corps of fraud fighters dedicated to educating Granite Staters on the three Rs of fraud: recognize, resist and report.
The presentation is free, open to the public, appropriate for any age group, and covers a variety of topics, includiing:
- Top frauds and scams
- Elderly as targets
- Guarding personal information
- Identity theft
- Resources available to protect consumers
