Fraud prevention resources

Our free fraud prevention resources can help older adults and their families avoid common scams. They're available in a variety of formats for the public to download or order in bulk.

CFPB's Office for Older Americans created placemats with simple scam prevention messages to be used by meal delivery programs. Now you can order posters, bookmarks, and table tents, in addition to placemats, to display at libraries, financial institutions, community centers, faith-based organizations and churches, and legal aid offices. Or download handouts to share in e-mail newsletters or on your website.

We have created companion resources that practitioners can use to reinforce the scam prevention messages.
