FARGO, N.D. — Nearly 300 people took a lesson about scams from the AARP Wednesday afternoon.

The crowd gathered at the Fargodome, where AARP representatives held a "Lunch and Learn."

The seminar featured ways to watch out scams, and what to do if you see one.

People from the North Dakota Attorney General's office spoke, along with local law enforcement.

AARP representatives say the best way to avoid scams is to just listen to your gut.

"If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is," says ND AARP President, Kathi Schwan. "That advice has been used for many years, and it's just as true today as ever."
