Fraud prevention tips and checklists

Marie from Elderimpact.org is appalled by all the fraudulent activity in society, and is on a mission to fight it.

“I’ve been moved to action after a family member was taken advantage of by a scammer in Las Vegas, who banked on her love and dedication to her family and convinced her to wire him thousands of dollars before vanishing without a trace,” Marie says to Lovefraud.  “I can’t help but think that if we had taken steps to alert her to such scams — how to recognize them, how to be effectively cautious with her information, etc. — this could have been prevented.”

Here’s Marie’s list of websites with important information for preventing fraud. Take a look — and share the links with everyone you know!
