Know that you are not alone

The AARP Fraud Watch Network and Volunteers of America (VOA) have created a new program to help you. It's  VOA | ReST, which stands for Resilience, Strength and Time. The program is designed to address the emotional impact of your experience. We offer free, facilitated peer discussion groups that seek to provide emotional support for you and others in similar situations. Family members are invited to participate at your discretion.

The AARP Fraud Watch Network VOA | ReST program features small groups whose members are led in discussion by one or more trained peer facilitators. The aim is to help you re-establish trust, integrate your experience and build back your resilience despite a difficult and painful occurrence.

Online, hour-long sessions are scheduled nearly every day. You can join by computer, tablet or smartphone. Discussions are confidential. You are welcome to attend one session or several – it's your choice.

Experiencing a scam can be devastating, but it doesn't have to define you. Sign up for a session and take an important step toward emotional recovery.

Remember, you are not alone

The AARP Fraud Watch Network VOA | ReST program was created with the Volunteers of America to address the emotional impact of your experience. We offer free peer discussion groups that are led by a facilitator and seek to provide emotional support for you and others in similar situations. If you wish, your family members may participate in the group — that’s up to you.  

Have you been affected by a scam?

Experiencing a scam can have negative impacts well beyond the loss of money. Our trained volunteer specialists on our AARP Fraud Watch Network Helpline talk with tens of thousands of people each year who have suffered a financial loss from a scam and often learn about the resultant emotional wounds victims carry with them.
