Avoid Financial Fraud in 2019

Avoid Financial Fraud in 2019

In January, the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging held its first hearing of the 116th Congress focused on fighting senior scams. The hearing examined the progress made by federal, state, and local law enforcement to coordinate efforts to combat elder fraud and the steps needed to enhance that coordination. 

The committee also released its 2019 Fraud Book with information on the top 10 most common scams reported to its Fraud Hotline (1-855-303-9470) in 2018 and tips on ways to protect ourselves from scams.  Last year, the Hotline received more than 1,500 calls from nearly every state.  Once again, the IRS impersonation scam, was the most reported scam.
