Consumer Scams

In The Duluth News Tribune today they had an article about consumer scams. It directs one to the the state attorney general office’s website. There are scams for health insurance, long term care, drugs, loans, house foreclosures, credit card scams, and just about any bogus thing you can think up.

You can also check out consumer complaints that involve charity scams. You can find out who pays taxes for Minnesota charities and the rating of various charities as there are charity websites. I have had friends who have been victims of charity scams.
