Don’t be a Target or a Victim!

AARP Idaho in conjunction with the Idaho Scam Jam Alliance will host the state’s largest fraud and identity theft conference May 25 in the Jewett Auditorium at The College of Idaho. The Caldwell Scam Jam is a free, fun, educational and interactive forum where you can learn to avoid today’s scams and frauds while getting the tools you need to protect yourself and loved ones from con artists. Breakfast and lunch are complimentary and there will be a prize drawing at the end of the day. There is also free parking available on campus.

Scam Jams are important because criminals have several ways of stealing your hard-earned money, including phishing scams, tech-support scams, gold coin scams, oil and gas scams, sweepstakes and lottery scams, grandparent scams and many more. Although their methods are different, research shows the tactics scammers use are the same.

The access to information that Scam Jams provide is invaluable in the fight against fraud at the local level and across Idaho. Come for the whole day or stay for just a little while. We are happy to have you and look forward to the day!


Members of the Idaho Scam Jam Alliance include: AARP Idaho, Better Business Bureau, BSU Center of the Study of Aging, Idaho Attorney General’s Office, Idaho Commission on Aging, Idaho Crime Prevention Association, Idaho Department of Finance, Idaho Department of Insurance, Idaho Legal Aid Services. Justice Alliance for Vulnerable Adults, Senior Health Insurance Benefits Advisors, Senior Medicare Patrol Program.
