Event description
Gift cards are popular for birthdays, holidays and scams. Find out why scammers are asking for gift cards more than ever.

About this event

Roughly one quarter of all scam victims reporting to the FTC say they lost money to a gift card scam, and adults over the age of 65 are at the highest risk for these scams.

Join BBB for a Facebook Live chat about the increasing danger of gift card scams, presented in collaboration with the Department of Justice. We’ll show you the risk factors, the warning signs and how to avoid them. When you know the risks, you can help protect your friends, customers, grandparents and others who may fall victim.

This event is presented as part of Protect Week, an awareness campaign seeking to educate Marylanders about the many forms of abuse, neglect and financial exploitation of older adults.
