Definition of fraud
Tune in every other Friday for tips on stopping common frauds and scams.
Fraudsters are offering older people purported miracle cures, preventive drugs and vaccine appointments—for a fee. These scams exploit potential victims’ anxiety about having to wait for a vaccination. The past year has heightened people’s isolation and made them more susceptible to such pitches.
Don't just toss your sensitive documents...shred 'em for free with AARP! We also have a wealth of valuable information at our AARP Fraud Watch Network workshops about how to stay savvy to the latest scams out there and how to keep yourself and loved ones safe. Our shreds and workshops (often combined) are must-attend events that you don't want to miss! When it comes to our shredding events, please remember: no businesses please, and make sure to remove all plastic and metal clips from documents to be shredded.
