Smart Seniors Avoid Scams and Fraud

As your Attorney General, my first priority is to protect Arizona from predators.

Predators can take many forms, and everyone is potentially a target. That is why it is vital that you become as familiar as possible with the methods some criminals use to perpetrate scams and understand ways to protect yourself.

Scam artists are not only deceptive, but they can also be maliciously creative. They look for new ways to steal, defraud, and otherwise make victims of unsuspecting people. My office wants you to be as prepared as possible because you could encounter a scam on the phone, through the mail, via computer or even when someone you don’t know knocks on your door with an offer that may be too good to be true.

This booklet will help you have the tools you need to be well-informed. You can also go to the Attorney General’s website at for more information and ways you can contact someone at my office for additional help.

Thank you

Tom Horne
Arizona Attorney General
