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.

The Expo will take place on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, from 9:00am to 3:00pm at Dover Downs® Hotel & Casino. One of the largest of its kind in Delaware, the event will offer local businesses the opportunity to present in front of the biggest and fastest-growing population in the state – the 55+ community. Attendees are not required to be 55 or older, and caregivers, friends and family members are encouraged to attend. The event is free and pre-registration is not required.

Also join AARP in the DuPont Room for a “Fireside Fraud Chat” with Deputy Attorney General Gina Schoenberg at 1:00pm. If you or someone you know has been scammed or has been the victim of fraud, you need to attend this important chat. Gina Schoenberg, Deputy Attorney General for the Delaware Dept. of Justice, will join AARP to provide you with valuable information to help PREVENT fraud. She will discuss the top scams happening in the First State, take questions and foster a discussion about recognizing and preventing fraud so you can protect your hard-earned money.

The event is produced by the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce (CDCC.) There will also be sponsor-conducted seminars, live entertainment, a cooking show, a volunteer fair, free giveaways, and more scheduled throughout the day. For more information, call the CDCC office at 302-734-7513 to request a brochure or visit www.cdcc.net/55plus for a schedule of events, list of exhibitors, and more.
