About

AARP North Carolina held this Access Live event to discuss scams and frauds related to the IRS, the North Carolina Department of Revenue, and other government impostors, which tend to target older adults. Joining the call were guest speakers, North Carolina Secretary of Revenue Ronald Penny, and North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. Hosts educated participants on how to spot scams, how to avoid scams, and what to do if they have been a victim or their identity has been compromised. AARP North Carolina State Director, Michael Olender also discussed AARP’s Fraud Watch Network, and encouraged participants to sign up for this valuable service.
