Community Anti-Fraud Education
The Consumer Fraud Education Advocacy Component followed by the C.A.R.E. Program incorporates the results of an AARP study which found that elders need guidelines on recognizing deceptive practices, recognition that fraud is a crime, and an awareness of the pervasiveness and seriousness of these crimes.
Victims of abuse need the public to be aware of abuse, how to report it. Since its inception in 1997, the C.A.R.E. Program has provided valued anti-fraud education to people in Riverside County, including the elderly, community groups, and organizations.
