There is a tool on the Better Business Bureau website that can help you keep track of what scams are hot in your area. The Scam Tracker was launched several years ago, giving consumers a tool to track the various scams that are going on, where they are being practiced, and how much money is being lost. BBB Investigator Don O’Brien says you can easily find out what’s happening just by going online.
He says the map shows all of North America, so you can see what's happening in your neighborhood, or as far away as Canada or Mexico. You can find the Scam Tracker at www.bbb.org/scamtracker
