April AARP Bulletin Special Report: The Vast, Organized and Growing Business of International Fraud

April AARP Bulletin Special Report: The Vast, Organized and Growing Business of International Fraud

iCrowd Newswire - Mar 30, 2020

WASHINGTON,– Whether it’s the coronavirus, the upcoming election, a new Medicare policy, or any major development, professional fraud organizations are increasingly using the day’s news as opportunities to scam Americans, and particularly older Americans. In this month’s cover story, AARP Bulletin opens the curtains on the increasingly sophisticated, professional, international, and tech-savvy world of fraud.

This unique and deep AARP investigation reveals that the scammers of today are more organized and business-like than ever before. They use advanced technology to their advantage: that means that the call that shows up on your phone with a local area code and prefix might be originating in FloridaJamaicaIndiaEastern Europe, or even Africa. Using email addresses and phone numbers, often purchased in bulk from illegal list brokers, most fraud organizations can afford to play the numbers game. The more they pitch, the more they profit.

So, how do you protect yourself? Even sophisticated scams can be avoided as long as people remain skeptical, ask questions, and take precautionary measures to protect themselves from fraud. Read more about how scammers operate internationally in this month’s cover story.
