Identity Theft and Scams
Unfortunately, identity theft and other financial scams are prevalent. It is unlikely that AOC or any of its subsidiaries or agents would solicit you for personal financial information. If you suspect that an e-mail, phone call or letter asking you for personal information, money or temporary employment may be fraudulent and AOC's name is used in connection with that solicitation, or if you believe that your personal information has been compromised by AOC or any of its subsidiaries or agents, please contact the AOC Webmaster or call (877) 295-1328.
