Join us for a special guest webinar!

Imposter scams are the largest class of scams reported to the Federal Trade Commission annually. Despite the many reports, it is believed that most scams go unreported. Seniors are often the targets of these scams because they often have more resources to lose and are less likely to report instances of fraud.

In this session, we will review the most popular imposter scams affecting seniors and examine ways seniors can keep themselves safe. We’ll also look at what to do if someone is a victim of an imposter scam.

Participants can expect to learn the following:

  • How to identify the 5 popular imposter scams affecting seniors
  • Strategies for preventing and detecting imposter scams
  • Methods for reporting scams when they occur
