Scams come in every conceivable variety. The most common ones even have names -- the sweetheart scam, the bank examiner scam, the lottery scam, the grandparents scam, the IRS scam, the pigeon drop. But they all share a common characteristic: To be successful, scams rely on their targets being so trusting that they don’t realize when someone is trying to take advantage of them.
Get prevention information regarding scams such as credit card fraud identity theft. Learn how various scams are run, how to recognize them and what you should do if you become a victim.
Presented by: Sergeant Duane Cannon of the Henderson County Sheriff's Department. Sgt. Cannon is a 34 year veteran of the Sheriff's Department and has worked with identity theft, scams and frauds for 8 years.
Sheriff Charles S. McDonald states: “The majority of these identity theft schemes and financial scams originate outside of the United States and that fact makes it nearly impossible to recover any stolen monies. These criminals often target the elderly and persons on fixed incomes and if victimized it has a lasting adverse effect on their quality of life."
