It’s Fraud Friday…the day of the week we are dedicating to tell you about real life scams and fraud stories. Check out this story in Atlanta about an appliance repairman scam defrauding people out of their money.
While today’s story doesn’t involve identity theft, it does emphasize how consumers should also follow the common principal businesses follow which is to “Know Your Customer.” What’s scary about this age old con is that he is using the Internet and SEO rankings to target victims.
Identity & Fraud Protection Tip: Be careful when searching for a services company online. Be sure to check out a company’s ratings on sites like Yelp, Angie’s List or Better Business Bureau before you hire anyone.
