Each year scammers improve their tactics by familiarizing themselves with current consumer trends and making use of emerging technologies.

In order to combat scammers, it is important to promote awareness of the top scams targeting consumers each year. The fight against fraud also relies heavily on consumer feedback. Each scam reported to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) provides valuable data that is used to acquire information that will help inform and protect other consumers.
