ABOUT THE SENIOR FRAUD EVENTS
The Oklahoma Insurance Department is partnering with The Medicare Assistance Program (MAP), the Social Security Administration, the Oklahoma Department of Securities, the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the Office of the Attorney General and AARP Oklahoma to educate Oklahomans on current scams and provide tips for staying safe. While people over the age of 65 are the typical targets of these attacks, we are seeing that they are not the only ones being scammed! People between the ages of 30-50 are also falling victim to new scams via social media. Join us for one or both of our in-person events to learn from industry experts how to avoid these scams.
These are free, public events not offering any continuing education credits.
