Hang Up on Fraud!
Learn How to Spot and Stop Fraud
As the state's consumer protection agency, the Minnesota Department of Commerce is committed to empowering older adults and their families to protect themselves against financial fraud.
We know that every day across Minnesota, older adults are targeted by fraudsters and scam artists. It can happen to anyone, whoever they may be and wherever they may live. We want you to be equipped to protect yourself and others against frauds and scams.
The Resources section above includes links to Hang Up on Fraud "toolkits," prepared by the Minnesota Commerce Department, with information and tips for recognizing and preventing fraud.
There are also four Hang Up on Fraud videos, which may be viewed/shown together or separately. Each video has an accompanying handout that may be printed and distributed.
We encourage you to use these videos, and accompanying materials, for presentations with older Minnesotans and/or their family members. They are suitable for use at community centers, senior residences, houses of worship and other venues.
