The problem: Most seniors have worked hard to save for retirement. They own their home and have excellent credit. Crooks and miscreants learned quickly that seniors also make good targets: some victims are embarrassed to report that they’ve been swindled. Others simply don’t know who to call when they’ve been victimized.

Telemarketing Fraud


Any phone call you receive with an offer that's too good to be true is too good to be true! "Unbelievable deals," "amazing prize offers" and other hyped pitches requiring you to act now are very likely to be a sham. Consider hanging up the phone immediately. Make sure your phone has caller ID and don't take any calls from numbers you do not recognize or unidentified callers. Always ask for written materials about any prize or vacation you've won.
