Join us for a free fraud fighting event!

Every day, hundreds of local residents lose their hard-earned money to a variety of fraud schemes. In fact, every 2 seconds, a con artist steals someone’s identity!

To strike back against scammers, AARP Virginia and Fairfax County Government’s Silver Shield Task Force are bringing together top experts and law enforcement officials to present at a free informational Scam Jam.

The presenters will discuss scams targeting Virginians, such as fake solicitor schemes, bogus investment deals, lottery scams, email fraud, a grandparent ruse and the latest identity theft shams.

Light refreshments and a complimentary lunch will be served.

Bring Your Documents to Shred
We will have a shred truck on-site from 8:00 a.m. until 12noon OR until the shred truck fills up so come early! Your documents will be shredded on-site free of charge. Residential material of a sensitive nature such as tax documents, financial records, etc.  (Please recycle junk mail and magazines through your normal collection service.) Up to four medium-sized packing boxes per vehicle. Please, no plastics or electronics.

Safely Dispose of Unused Medications at the Scam Jam
Police will be on hand with a Drug Take-Back box. Bring your unused or unneeded medications to the Scam Jam for a safe, convenient, and responsible way of disposing of drugs. Accepted items include prescription medication (schedule II-V controlled and non-controlled), prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications and medications for pets. Prohibited items include needles (sharps), liquids of any kind, illegal drugs, non-prescription ointments and lotions, aerosol cans, and inhalers
