Fraud and Scam Protection Educational Session
New frauds and scams seem to crop up weekly. Identity theft, investment fraud and scams rob millions of Americans of their hard-earned money. Every 2 seconds, a con artist steals someone’s identity. In the last year alone, Americans lost $18 billion of their hard-earned dollars to fraud, identity theft and scams.
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.
. Here’s what’s covered:
- Fraud trends and behavior – Understanding how much fraud is out there and the behaviors that put you at risk.
- The con artist’s play book – Understand the strategy and tactics used by con artists to defraud.
- Prevention – Know and practice the most effective prevention strategies to avoid becoming a victim, recognize the “red flags” and report.
- Resources – How to access and share up-to-date information about fraud identification and prevention and where to go if you or someone you love has been a victim.
