AARP Fraud Watch Network

As noted in the latest VIPRE Security News, AARP created a Fraud Watch Network site:

an interactive, national campaign to fight fraud and identity theft and give Americans access to information about how to protect themselves and their families.

The new site’s mission is:

Fight Back Against Scams in Your State

AARP’s Fraud Watch Network links you with experts, law enforcement and people like you who are on the lookout for scams. Check out the latest alerts from state Attorneys General and other local officials, read what people are reporting in your state, and let us know about any suspicious emails, phone calls or other scams you’ve seen in your area. We’ll add your experience to the map so others know what to watch out for!
