AARP Fraud Watch Network, People’s United Bank, N.A. & the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) are joining forces this month to offer free events across the state to help Connecticut residents fight fraud as part of the second annual “Operation: Stop Scams” initiative. Join the AARP Connecticut volunteer team and representatives from People’s United Bank and USPIS at one of the two-hour sessions packed with information! Our team of experts are ready to help you FIGHT FRAUD!

The AARP Fraud Watch Network brings fraud-fighting efforts to consumers nationwide in “Operation: Stop Scams” — a month-long series of events in communities coast-to-coast, as AARP state organizations sponsor free local events from April 16 through Tuesday, May 21, 2018.

The AARP Fraud Watch Network launched in 2013 as a free resource for people of all ages. The FWN website provides information about fraud and scams, prevention tips from experts, an interactive scam-tracking map, fun educational quizzes, and video presentations featuring Fraud Watch Network Ambassador Frank Abagnale.  Users may sign up for “Watchdog Alert” emails that deliver breaking scam information, or call a free helpline at 877-908-3360 to speak with volunteers trained in fraud counseling.

The six events in Connecticut will take place at People’s United Bank branches listed below from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.:
