Red Flag Award

By Scam Awareness | June 4, 2014

In thinking about all the hard work many great organizations and individuals do every day to prevent hardworking Americans from being scammed, we have decided that they deserve some recognition. That's why we are introducing a new monthly award that recognizes their work, how they have added to the many voices trying to protect Americans from scams. We are calling this award the "Red Flag Award," and it could be presented to an organization, an individual, or a company that uses its voice to warn Americans about scams.

The winner of the inaugural Red Flag Award is AARP.  They have introduced a fantastic "Fraud Watch" network that warns seniors - and all Americans - about the dangerous scams that are circulating around the country.
