A New Phone Scam Targeting Mainers

"Don't hang up!" This is how the latest scam call begins, and the scam artists are hoping it will end with your giving them your money.

Many Mainers have reported receiving a phone call in which they are told not to hang up and that AARP is making available a senior alert system. The caller also says that you have been referred to the program by a physician and if you buy into the program, you will receive $3,000 in grocery store certificates. The phone number making the calls is 626-207-2454 and is listed as a California phone number.

This is a scam! AARP does not endorse this in anyway and is not making calls soliciting customers for a senior alert system. If you receive this call report it to your local police department and the Attorney General.
