Anti-fraud hotline launched to assist seniors

Posted: January 14, 2014 - 6:45pm

If you or someone you know suspect you’ve been a victim of a scam or fraud aimed at seniors, the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging has set up a toll-free hotline to help.

The hotline was unveiled in November to make it easier for senior citizens to report suspected fraud and receive assistance. It is staffed by a team of committee investigators weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The investigators will directly examine complaints and, if appropriate, refer them to the proper authorities.

Anyone with information about suspected fraud can call the toll-free fraud hotline at 1-855-303-9470, or contact the committee through its website at
