Scams & Fraud
Con artists are always devising new ways to target consumers. AARP is helping Minnesotans stay a step ahead with the Twin Cities Scam Jam on Thursday, Dec. 1.
The AARP Fraud Watch Network is helping Minnesotans 50-plus and others avoid becoming victims with two virtual fraud prevention events that will focus on a wide variety of impostor scams and recent reports to its helpline.
Have you ever gotten a suspicious text or phone call from someone needing money or access to your financial information? How about a new love interest wanting gift cards in order to come visit? Have you gotten a pop-up on your computer that says it has a virus and someone needs to take over your laptop to fix it?
The Federal Bureau of Investigations’ Minneapolis Field Office has announced that Jay Haapala, Associate State Director of Community Engagement for AARP Minnesota, is the recipient of the 2020 Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA).
