AARP Fraud Watch Network - The Con Artists Playbook
Presented by AARP Fraud Watch Network volunteers Richard Bright and Byron Peterson
This interactive seminar takes a look at the psychology behind ID Theft, Fraud & Scams. Through actual footage of scammers, insights and advice, you'll walk away armed with the tools you need to keep yourself and your family safe.
In 2014, AARP launched the Fraud Watch Network to help educate individuals and families about common types of scams and fraud and provide you with the tools you need to outsmart con artists and protect your hard-earned money. Since then, we’ve trained hundreds of volunteers throughout the country and here in Connecticut who are making their communities safer by offering free fraud prevention talks and workshops at senior centers, libraries, colleges and other public venues across the state.
Offered at 9:30 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.
Available free of charge to AARP members and non-members alike, and people of any age, the Fraud Watch Network provides:
- Watchdog Alert emails that deliver breaking scam information,
- Prevention tips based on the latest information from experts,
- An interactive map with the latest law enforcement warnings from each state,
- A phone number people can call to talk to volunteers trained to help fraud victims, and
- Access to a network of people who are sharing their experiences with scams so they can help others protect themselves.
