How To Protect Yourself From Scammers During The Economic Downturn

Today’s troubled economic waters are infested with a school of hungry sharks – con artists who promise people a lifeline through jobs, recession-proof income, and access to free government grant money.  They’re bleeding money from individuals…and from the economy as a whole.

On the education front, the nation’s consumer protection agency has produced a new video to help people learn how to spot a scam.   It features a former telemarketer of fraudulent business opportunities who explains exactly how he got people to part with their money.  It also features two of his victims, as well, describing how they got caught.
