AARP Fraud Alert Keeps Us Informed About Current Scams

AARP periodically issues fraud and scam alerts on its website. These scams come mostly through email, phone and web and can sound very convincing. Range of schemes are wide, including such things as Medicare, Social Security, credit card, cruises, IRS, tax preparation, and debt collection. The current focus is on coronavirus-related fraud.

Bookmark the fraud and scam alerts so that you can easily check the website when you get a suspicious email or phone call or you can sign up to have the alerts send directly to you through your email account. There is also a helpline phone number to call: 877-908-3360.
