Suspect a Scam? Call AARP's Fraud Helpline

Volunteer of the Fraud Watch Network helpline


Sandy, a AARP Fraud Watch Network Helpline Volunteer

Fraud is a persistent problem — and AARP’s toll-free helpline can give you facts that help you protect your money.

If you suspect you are being targeted by a fraudster — or that a relative or friend is — call the helpline at 877-908-3360 and select option 2. 

The free service is provided by AARP’s Fraud Watch Network.

Trained volunteers staff the helpline on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

The helpline is available to AARP members and nonmembers. It offers translation services in 240 languages.

These volunteers can assist you in spotting and stopping frauds. And they can guide you on next steps if you’ve been a victim. 

"I like helping people and empowering them. Often victims feel like they have lost control; I strive to give them the resources and confidence to regain that control." 

— Sandy, AARP Fraud Watch Network Helpline volunteer
