Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar and Republican Jerry Moran from Kansas are urging the Federal Trade Commission to take action to protect seniors from holiday scams:

Klobuchar points to recent reports of an increase in holiday scams targeting seniors — including false promises of immediate COVID vaccinations to seniors eager to spend the holidays with family. Klobuchar is urging the F-T-C to better educate seniors in recognizing such scams and to help them understand what recourse they have if they fall victim to scammers.
