    AARP and representatives from the Vermont attorney general’s office and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are hosting a public meeting on the latest scams and how to protect yourself from becoming a victim April 30 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Holiday Inn in Rutland Town.

    Consumers lose billions of dollars every year to various kinds of consumer fraud. People over 50 are especially vulnerable and account for more than half of all victims. Whether it’s bogus investment deals, the grandparent scam, email ploys, lottery scams, or the newest ID theft scheme, sophisticated con artists are busy at work coming up with new ways to get people to hand over their hard-earned money.

    RSVP at (877) 926-8300.
