The second time I watched the report I noticed that the woman was holding an AARP book. It's titled: Outsmarting the Scam Artists: How to Protect Yourself From the Most Clever Cons. At first I wanted to recommend it, but while there are mainly positive reviews, there are a few that say the content is dated and lacks internet examples, even though the book was published in 2012. Can anyone recommend this title? Or another resource you've used to stay ahead of the criminals? Send me a message.
