Operation Protect Veterans Webinar

Start Date:11/11/2019

Start Time:7:00 PM EST

Duration:30 minutes


Their time on the battlefield is over. Now it's our turn to protect our Veterans from scams.

Our Veterans deserve a lot of things. Praise. Honor. Security. Respect. Here's what they don't deserve: attempts to take advantage of their service. Yet every day, scammers attempt to defraud our Veterans of their hard-earned benefits, steal their identity, or take their savings. Together, we can fight back and take one small step to repay our Veterans for the service they've given and the sacrifices they've made.

Join the AARP Fraud Watch Network for a free "Operation Protect Veterans" webinar, this Veteran's Day, November 11, 2019, from 7 to 7:30 pm ET/4 to 4:30 pm PT. You'll learn about scams that target Veterans and how to protect yourself and your loved ones from becoming victimized by scammers' tactics.

Register now to watch the webinar live or on-demand at your convenience. You'll have an opportunity to ask questions of AARP scams and fraud experts.
