Outsmarting the Scam Artists: How to Protect Yourself From the Most Clever Cons
by Doug Shadel
Paperback | E-book
A practical guide to avoiding the most common scams, from a fraud-fighting expert
U.S. consumers lose billions of dollars each year to scam artists—and the next victim could be you. While anyone can be targeted, many victims are older. In AARP's Outsmarting the Scam Artists, renowned fraud-fighter Doug Shadel offers practical advice for consumers who want to protect their money as well as the financial assets of their parents and families.
Despite the rise of scams, many people are embarrassed to admit they've been victimized. The author helps break the cycle of shame by including accounts from the people who've been scammed as well as tips from a surprising source: convicted con artists who reveal how they've defrauded people like you.
Scammers are everywhere. But with Outsmarting the Scam Artists in hand, you can protect yourself and your money.
