How to spot modern scam techniques, from fake remote jobs to check fraud

MPR News

Scamming is an industry that seeks to trick and prey on the vulnerable through a variety of platforms.      

Older people have been known to fall victim to fraud, but now younger adults are the targets and they’re losing money to online shopping scams, phishing emails and fake jobs. Even phone scams continue to hit millions of Americans each year, costing nearly $40 billion in 2022.

MPR News host Angela Davis talks about scams and how to be a smarter consumer. We also look at how scam artists have gotten smarter and why their tricks are getting harder to identify.
