Placeholder Image
MADISON - With scams and fraud schemes proliferating on social media, AARP Wisconsin has teamed with the AARP Fraud Watch Network for a campaign to educate Wisconsinites about social media hazards and provide information about how they can protect themselves. Scammers have been using email and telephone calls to target unsuspecting victims for years. With today's boom in social media use, according to a news release, con artists are just as likely to use Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms to execute scams to steal people's money and identities.
