Scammers Attack in Many Ways!

Graphic that says "Scam" in big, red letters

Scammers are always dreaming up new ways to get your money.

Your best protection is to:

  • learn about scams and fraud
  • hang up when you think it might be a scam call, or stop the online conversation
  • if you were scammed, stop payment ASAP, and
  • report the scam.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says Vermonters lost $10 million to fraud and scams in 2021! The FTC says recent top scams seen in Vermont include: 

  • imposter scams
  • foreign money offers and fake check scams
  • prizes, sweepstakes and lottery scams, and
  • identity theft.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If something seems fishy, it probably is!
