Today is National Honor Our LGBTQ+ Elders Day. There are many ways to celebrate this important occasion, but here at CCSLS we are sharing this important guest column from Ari Lazarus of the Federal Trade Commission #OlderAmericansMonth.
Today is National Honor Our LGBTQ+ Elders Day. There are many ways to celebrate this important occasion, but here at the FTC, we’re focusing on helping LGBTQ+ elders avoid frauds and scams — and we hope you can pitch in too.
Research shows that people who know about scams are less likely to engage with scammers and less likely to lose money. Older American’s Month and National Honor Our LGBTQ+ Elders Day are two great reasons to share what you know about spotting and avoiding scams with friends, family, and people in your own community. Sharing what you know can help protect someone who you know from losing money to a scam.
