Fraud Brigade

Tuesday, June 21, 2022


The Fraud Brigade Program is coming to our Senior Center
 Please join us on June 21 from 9am to 10am, and bring your questions and concerns.

This is a fraud awareness program, and is a volunteer resource provided by AmeriCorps Seniors Retired Senior Volunteer Program of Central Massachusetts. In 2021, the Federal Trade Commission has reported nearly $6 Billion of lost money from scams. Though that number may be staggering, we see that as a call to action. With programs like the Fraud Squad Players and our Senior Fraud Helpline (1-800-297-9760) we are assisting seniors in recognizing scams before they fall victim, resisting the persuasive nature of scams and reporting these scams to the proper agencies.
