What is fraud prevention at AARP?

The AARP Fraud Watch Network has made great strides in furthering our mission to help consumers protect themselves, their families, and their communities from scams and fraud, and to provide support when victimization occurs.

What do volunteers do to help prevent fraud?

Volunteer speakers can help educate community groups, clubs or professional organizations by identifying common scams and teaching people what to watch out for to avoid fraud or identity theft.
