AARP Fraud Watch Network: Who's Really on the Line?
The barrage of automated telephone solicitations or "robo calls" we get on our home and mobile phones has increased to nearly 50 billion calls a year, and it's estimated that up to half of those calls are scams.
Whether it's on the phone or online, new technology and "spoofing" tools have made it easier than ever for scammers to pretend to be someone they're not, such as the IRS or your bank or credit union. Their goal is simple - to fool you into handing over your hard earned money. But there is something you can do. Join us for "Spoof Proof Your Life" on June 12 in Spokane Valley.
