Consumer Fraud Reporting

Programs that provide a hotline or other mechanisms that consumers can use to report the activities of telephone scammers and other con artists who attempt to persuade older adults, women who live alone, community residents who have survived a fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake, tornado or other large-scale emergency that has disrupted the normal functioning of the community and other vulnerable people to part with their savings. Common scams include fraudulent prize offers, "free" travel packages that have hidden costs or which never transpire, "get rich quick" investments that turn out to be worthless, phony charities with names that are similar to well-known organizations and schemes involving promises to recover an individual's money following their victimization by another scam.
