AARP Seeking Warning Signs To Avoid Gift Card Scams

Statewide Iowa — Iowa’s Attorney General, Insurance Commissioner, and AARP State Director have been traveling the state in an effort to educate people about scams.

AARP state director, Brad Anderson, says gift card scams have become more prevalent and there’s an effort in the Legislature to help.

Anderson says having the sign up at the kiosks where the gift cards are sold could prevent someone from being scammed.

He says the gift card scams require interaction while the purchase is being made.

Anderson says the bill requiring the warning sign for gift cards has passed the first legislative deadline.
