Tip-Offs To Rip-Offs: How To Spot A Con Before They Spot You
Wednesday, May 25, 2022
AARP is joining forces with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, Pierce County Human Services, BECU and Nomorobo to hold a free "Tip-Offs to Rip-Offs," online event aimed at helping Tacoma area consumers stay a step ahead of the scammers.
The free online event will be held from 10:00am - 11:30 am on Wednesday, May 25. Participants will hear about the latest scams targeting the Tacoma area, including a journey inside an actual fraudulent boiler room to show step by step how scammers manipulate our emotions and steal our money.
Through a unique new partnership with the call-blocking service Nomorobo, participants will also learn how they can gain real-time access to the specific robocall scams flooding phone lines in their area. With these and other early warning tools, consumers will gain the inside track on recognizing some of the newest scams before the cons have a chance to make their pitch.
The event is free, but pre-registration is required at the link. You do not need to be an AARP member to join in.
This is an interactive event, and participants will have a chance to ask their own questions of our consumer fraud experts.
