We honor BBB Scam Tracker heroes: those who bravely share their story, regardless of whether they lost money or not. Our research shows that half of those who report a scam did so to warn others.
Of those that shared their story on BBB Scam Tracker, 15 percent of those reporting an employment scam lost money. The median loss was $1,715—nearly double that reported across all consumers.
Military consumers reported they were more likely to be scammed, with a median reported loss of $280 last year—27% higher than the general population. We know how much you give to your country, and want to help you keep your hard-earned money safe.
This Veterans Day, most people are honoring the military members who served this country. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous scammers are doing just the opposite.
