AARP Eye Center
With identity theft on the rise, AARP Hawaii will update islanders on how to protect themselves from the latest scams, from stealing mail to selling bogus coronavirus treatments.
AARP Hawaii invites members to hear from and question experts in a tele–town hall and Facebook Live seminar on Thursday, July 16, at 9 a.m. Members whose phone numbers are not already on file with AARP can sign up for the call at vekeo.com/aarphawaii/#. To watch the Facebook Live broadcast, go to the Facebook page @AARPHawaii.
The Federal Trade Commission recorded more than 650,000 complaints of identity theft in 2019, a 46 percent increase from the previous year.
AARP surveys find that most people do not take basic precautions to protect their digital identity, including monitoring their bank accounts.
