Delaware recently ranked #4 among all states for number of identity theft complaints; and ranked #8 for general fraud complaints. The City of Dover ranked #7 nationwide for fraud complaints. You can prevent yourself from becoming part of this growing statistic of consumers who are scammed daily. AARP wants to help, so we decided to be a sponsor of the 55+ Expo and focus on FRAUD PREVENTION. Join us at the Expo in Dover to gain valuable tools and tips and to sign on the AARP Fraud Watch Network so you can get ongoing updates about scams nationwide and in your community.
