Useful Resources for Older Adults
Anti-Fraud Hotline and Web Form for Older Adults
The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging has set up a toll-free hotline (1-855-303-9470)
to help older adults who suspect fraud or a scam may be occurring. The hotline will
make it easier for older Americans to report suspected fraud and find assistance for
themselves or for someone they know. A team of investigators will help figure out
what steps to take to combat possible investment scams, identity theft, bogus sweepstakes
and lottery schemes, Medicare and Social Security fraud, and a variety of other consumer
Anyone with information about suspected fraud should reach out to an investigator by telephone (9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. EST) or through a web form that will send an email to the investigative team.
