AARP Warning Against Investment Fraud

Efforts to protect older investors from investment fraud is an ongoing focus for consumer advocates.

The AARP North Carolina and a pair of financial regulators are stressing Monday that seniors need to be on guard against scammers out to take their money. AARP, North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, and Financial Industrial Regulator Authority Foundation President John Gannon are kicking off a statewide campaign to help senior citizens avoid being ripped off when they place their trust in an investment. Marshall's office enforces and administers state securities laws designed to protect investors.

    Senior citizens need to figure out that AARP is not looking out for their best interest. It is incredible to me that any person of age would join a group that is SUPPORTING a plan to take $500 Billion out of Medicare.
