National Consumer Protection Week

It’s National Consumer Protection Week and thousands of Nevadans each year fall victim to scams resulting in financial loss. Tim Johnston with Better Business Bureau said, “When we think of imposter scams, we think of government scams like social security saying your card has been compromisede.” Johnston offers this piece of advice when it comes to any scam in question: to stop, breathe and reach out if anyone is threatening you with jail time or asking for payment online.
