AARP AARP States Iowa Scams & Fraud

Fraud Watch Helps Foil Scams


The state population is aging, and financial crimes against older people are a growing concern. Thirty-seven percent of fraud complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission in 2015 came from consumers 60 and older.

To combat the problem, AARP Iowa has trained a team of Fraud Watch Network volunteers, who make presentations to church groups, senior centers, service organizations and other community groups across the state. The AARP state office wants to expand the number of organizations reached in 2017.
