Top Scams of 2009


Better Business Bureau offices all around the country are sharing their top complaints for 2009. While they vary slightly in order, nearly all list the same types of scams. Here are the top scams of 2009:

  • Advance Fee Loans
  • Door-to-Door Sales
  • Friend/Family in Distress
  • H1N1 Flu Scams
  • Home Improvement Scams
  • Lottery and Fake Check Scams
  • Job Hunter Scams
  • Mystery Shopping
  • Phishing E-mails
  • Robocalls
  • Teeth-Whitening Offers
  • Weight Loss Pill Free Trial Offers

We should all resolve to be better consumers in 2010 because I doubt the scammers are resolving to be better people in the coming year.

    Thanks for the post! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and article. I rarely post comment…

    If I want to get a hold of you, what would be the best way to get in touch? I’d love to run some ideas by you one of these days…related to the acn marketing video phone project I am working on. Thanks a lot and I look forward to meeting with you!
