AARP Event Teaches Seniors About Scams

Posted: Updated:
Phishing scams constantly target North Dakotans and have schemed people out of thousands of dollars. This week a group of people are doing their best to fight it.

American Association of Retired Persons held an informative meeting for more than 220 people this afternoon. Besides informing people what to look for, AARP urges everyone to be proactive.

"We want them to be very attentive to any calls that might come in unsolicited and also to take advantage of AARP fraud watch network. If someone signs up online, they will get an email, information and updates on what the latest scams are," says Janis Cheney, the North Dakota Director for AARP.

For more information contact the attorney general's office or visit  www.aarp.org.
