AARP scam alert: National Consumer Protection Week

Wiscasset Newspaper

It’s National Consumer Protection Week —and while AARP is focused on protecting consumers year-round – this is a good time to highlight some key consumer protection tips.

Giving out personal or financial information to someone who contacts you is a high-risk proposition. Rather than clicking links from texts and emails from your bank or from businesses you have accounts with, go to your app if you have one, or to a web browser and type the address in yourself – that way you know you are going to the legitimate site. Lastly, engage your inner skeptic when a communication produces a strong emotional response; we know scammers want us “under the ether” of emotion to get us to believe their lies.
