Scams: The worksheet below was provided by AARP; it contains questions you should ask when you wish to determine whether a phone call is legitimate or a scam. If you do not get satisfactory answers to the questions, hang up immediately!
AARP Scam Prevention Worksheet

[personal note from the webmaster: I can attest to the "slickness" of these callers. I have had the "Nephew in trouble and needs money" scam tried on me. These callers have an answer for everything! Your best bet is to get a phone number to call back and then check with someone! The caller will urge you NOT to tell anyone so they will not be embarrassed but they really do not want you to have a chance to think about what they have asked you to do. Better the caller be embarrassed than you be scammed out of your money!]
