AARP is encouraging members to share their experiences with fraud to help others avoid the same pitfalls.
“Telling your story could be a powerful way to help your friends and neighbors protect themselves,” said Jane Margesson of AARP Maine.
Depending on their comfort level, participants may choose to give a written statement or a videotaped interview. Videos may be posted—with permission—on the Maine Fraud Prevention Alliance website and AARP Maine’s Facebook page.
