Attend a Stop the Scammers Event

Join the Iowa Department of Insurance & Financial Services and AARP for a FREE educational Stop the Scammers event! Con artists target people aged 60 and older, swindling millions of Americans out of almost $28.3 billion each year*. Don’t become another statistic and protect yourself from fraud.

Our team of fraud fighters has compiled real-world tips and tools that can help protect you and your loved ones. By arming yourself with knowledge of common fraud schemes, you can learn to avoid and report scams. Join us in this seminar to become an Iowa Fraud Fighter and take steps toward a safer future.
