Senate Aging Committee Launces New Anti-Fraud Hotline

By Dianne De La Mare

The US Senate Special Committee on Aging has just set up a new toll-free hotline aimed at providing senior citizens an opportunity to report instances of suspected fraud and to get appropriate assistance.  The hotline will be staffed by a team of committee investigators on weekdays from 9-5PM, EST.  The investigators, who have significant experience with investment scams, identity theft, bogus sweepstakes and lottery schemes, Medicare and Social Security fraud, and a variety of other issues, will directly examine the complaints and, if appropriate, refer them to the proper authorities.  Anyone with information about suspected fraud can call the toll-free fraud hotline at 855-303-9470, or also contact the committee through its website here.
