We’ve recently seen digital money movement fraud on the rise. A scammer can contact you requesting payment through a Wire Transfer or transfer via Zelle® — these methods allow money to be sent quickly, and the funds are often hard to trace and recover. You should never wire money or send money using Zelle® to:
  • Anyone who claims to be from a government agency
  • Any stranger, no matter what reason they give
  • A telemarketer trying to sell you something
  • Anyone claiming your account is compromised
  • Unauthorized, unverified cryptocurrency sites or salespeople
  • Anyone asking you to send money to yourself

HLAA Brings Awareness to Global Standards for Cochlear Implant Users
The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) took part in a recently published, first of its kind research study in the Journal of the American Medical Association on the minimum standards of care and treatment for adults with cochlear implants.
HLAA was part of a global panel which included 31 ear, nose and throat surgeons and audiologists as well as seven international consumer and professional advocacy organizations calling for improved standards of adult hearing care.
Throughout this process and in the final published work HLAA represented the voice of consumers and adults who use cochlear implants.
