Senior Consumer Fraud Task Force
The North Carolina Senior Consumer Fraud Task Force was established in 1998 by the Office of the Attorney General, the North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services and AARP to fight consumer fraud that targets seniors in our State. Federal, state and local law enforcement, consumer networks, crime prevention agencies and the state's aging network have formed an alliance to take action against consumer fraud.
