About

AARP North Dakota hosted this Access Live event that featured Special Agent Frank Gasper of the FBI to discuss ways that people fall victim to scams and steps they can take to protect themselves. Special Agent Gasper provided some of his background as the lead agent on Operation Hard Copy, which was a series of investigations and prosecutions relating to the Jamaican Lottery telemarketing scam, which affected North Dakotans with losses approaching $6 million. He advised participants to avoid engaging in telephone conversations, as most legitimate businesses do not call over the phone and do not use threatening language.
