AARP Partners with Auditor General and Secretary of Banking for 'Scam Jam' Event

Posted on 04/15/22

AARP Pennsylvania partnered with Pennsylvania Auditor General Timothy DeFoor and Secretary of Banking and Securities Richard Vague for a "Scam Jam" Fraud Watch event at Messiah Lifeways to a crowd of 40 independent living residents.  

The Secretary welcomed AARP Consumer Issues Task Force Chair Mary Bach and shared AARP messaging about keeping safe from current scams and how financial and consumer literacy can help keep money in your pocket.  

The event was also covered by the local FOX and ABC affiliates. 

The Auditor-General recently launched a “Be Money Smart” program for college students and indicated that the program messaging could be extended to older adults. 

AARP Pennsylvania equips consumers with up-to-date knowledge to spot and avoid scams. We connect those targeted by scams with our fraud helpline specialists, who provide support and guidance on what to do next. AARP also advocates at the federal, state, and local levels to enact policy changes that protect consumers and enforce laws.
