Event Description

As part of Older Americans Month, the Federal Trade Commission and the Senior Medicare Patrol are presenting a free webinar.

Spot and avoid scams, identity theft, and impersonators
Wednesday, May 25, 2022 | 2-3pm ET

Join an interactive discussion about current scams with the FTC and Senior Medicare Patrol Resource Center. Learn how to spot and avoid scams and keep your information safe from impersonators.

Find out what to do if you’re scammed and get resources to avoid — or recover — from identity theft. You’ll also get information about how to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse.

We hope to get your questions during the webinar to have a lively discussion of these topics and the free resources you can share in your community.
