CFPB and Meals on Wheels Partner to Offer Elder Fraud Avoidance Placemats

(The pdf for the issue in which this article appears is available for download: Vol. 37, Issue 6.)

 

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) launched a campaign in May to celebrate Older Americans Month and help prevent elder fraud and exploitation. They created a placemat with simple tips for avoiding common predatory consumer scams. Now, the placemat is available in Spanish. And, Meals on Wheels America is helping to distribute these consumer protection placemats on meal trays nationwide.

Those who are interested in distributing placemats to a senior center, meal program, or to loved ones, visit the CFPB’s free publications website to place your order. (Under the “Special Populations” section).

You can read more about this effort on the CFPB blog.
