The Mission of the Senior Fraud Program is to assist seniors in recognizing and resisting fraudulent offerings and possible scams.
The Senior Fraud Program has the following Goals:
•Ongoing consumer and community awareness to the prevention of Senior Fraud.
•To assist and advise senior citizens on business rights and practices.
•To work closely with the many different agencies, senior centers, and businesses that serve the Senior population.BBB Senior Fraud representatives give lectures and classes to educate seniors of the latest frauds and scams as well as providing information to help protect identities.
Our experience shows that military personnel are frequently the victims of unethical and unscrupulous business practices. They are young, often inexperienced, consumers whose salaries can be counted on to arrive twice a month, and are a very attractive target for scam artists and other aggressive promoters. Common practices directed at service members include: short-term loans at rates that may exceed 500% APR; expensive and unnecessary insurance sales; auto sales that charge exorbitant interest on already-overpriced vehicles; real estate “deals” that result in high rates of foreclosure; and worthless “work-at-home” offers.
In order to reduce the number of military personnel falling victim to these predatory practices, BBB Military Line training is presented by the BBB serving Central Virginia. The BBB has a memorandum of agreement with the DOD and is a partner in the DoD Financial Readiness Campaign.
