Office of Consumer Protection Recognized as National Experts on Consumer Fraud and Scams

Every day it seems we hear about a new or different scheme from crooks who try to cheat us. Today’s swindlers are getting more sophisticated and often target people when they are the most vulnerable.

Many of us have been the target of the Internal Revenue Service-impersonation scams and received threatening telephone calls. A recent Washington Post article reiterates that the con is growing and restates the fact that the IRS will never call and threaten jail.

The Office of Consumer Protection (OCP) is an excellent resource for residents looking to stay informed about ways to protect you and your family. Recently, OCP Director Eric Friedman was a featured expert for a U.S. News and Report Article on how consumers can protect themselves from scammers.
