Participants asked questions about how to prevent robocalls, when/where it is advisable to divulge personal information (such as social security number), how scammers are caught/prosecuted, and how to report scams and get help as a victim. Hosts also encouraged participants to utilize AARP’s free tax aide resource, which is available to anyone.
