FTC to Hold Advisory Group Meeting to Prevent Scams Against Seniors

Government and private sector officials will discuss effective scam prevention methods in the meeting.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced an online meeting of the Scams Against Older Adults Advisory Group on April 2. The meeting will feature reports from four committees that will address efforts to expand consumer education and outreach, enhance industry training for scam prevention, explore innovative methods to detect and halt scams, and review research on effective messages to consumers to prevent scams.

The advisory group was created under the Stop Senior Scams Act of 2022. The group is comprised of officials from government agencies, including the CFPB, FDIC, DOJ, HHS, and Treasury Department, as well as representatives from advocacy groups and private industry.

Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Samuel Levine will host the online meeting, which will be open to the public on the FTC’s website.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Levine as he oversees the meeting to prevent scams against senior citizens.
  • For the government and private sector officials to be discerning as they discuss effective methods for scam prevention.
  • For families of seniors who are attempting to protect their loved ones from being preyed upon.
