Top 10 Consumer Scams of 2017

As technology advances for our good, scam artists are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to deceive us by stealing our money and personal information. The top ten scams for 2017 produced some familiar frauds such as fake debt collection, employment scams and identity theft, but the number one scam was “phishing”. Phishing is an attempt to steal your personal and financial information by sending you an email or text message stating that you have won a contest or a message from your financial institution advising that your account has been compromised. You can protect yourself from this scam by not clicking on a link in an email that claims you won a prize or from your financial institution asking for personal information.

Although fraud can occur in many forms, the Better Business Bureau compiled a list of the Top 10 Consumer Scams of 2017.

Be alert and protect your personal and financial information by visiting our Consumer Alerts page for information and also view our list of common Fraud & Scams.
