Scammers Target Immigrant Communities

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — North Carolina ranks 16th in the country for reports of scams to the Federal Trade Commission, and consumer advocates say immigrant communities in the state are at increased risk of falling victim to scammers.

Monica Vaca with the Federal Trade Commission advises against letting any caller spur you into immediate action, regardless of what they claim the consequences are.

Also, reporting instances of fraud can help authorities track scammers and warn others about them.

One place to start is the state attorney general’s consumer protection hotline, at 877-5-NO SCAM. (877-566-7226).
