The AARP hosted an educational seminar Friday in Bridgeport called "Consumer University: Your money, your health."
More than 170 AARP members attended the seminar.
It featured experts speaking on various subjects including health and how to avoid fraud.
"We're talking about investment fraud. We're talking about healthcare fraud and in particular Medicare fraud. We want to provide tools, tips, and resources for folks to learn how to spot it, how to report it, and how to prevent themselves from being scammed," said Gaylene Miller, of AARP West Virginia.
Speaker of the house Tim Miley was the keynote speaker for the event.
