The Senior Citizens League has been involved in at least one scam involving hoax fliers sent to senior citizens. The fliers promised extra Social Security income if the senior citizens submitted personal information to the Senior Citizens League.
The Senior Citizens League entered the personal information received into a database. The hoaxed senior citizens were then sent letters asking for donations to the Senior Citizens League. The Senior Citizens League has also been accused of repeatedly sending out misleading fliers and mailings intended to scare senior citizens into donating money to the organization. The Senior Citizens League is a registered nonprofit organization that purports to educate and protect senior citizens.
