Pass It On: Older Adults, Fraud and the Federal Trade Commission

Summary:

This webinar will discuss the FTC’s new consumer education campaign for active older people – Pass It On. The campaign is based on the idea that older adults – a huge group with life experience and social networks – are part of the solution, not simply the victims of scammers. Pass It On acknowledges their experience, expertise, and trusted place in the community. It reinforces what they already know about some common scams, and gives them the tools to start conversations about these scams with a friend, neighbor or relative. The topics included in Pass It On are imposter scams, identity theft, fundraising fraud, health care scams, paying too much, and ‘you’ve won’ scams.
