Have you been the victim of a scam? Thursday, March 9, 2023, is National Slam the Scam Day.
Criminals often call, leave a voicemail, send a seemingly innocent social media connection, or email correspondence from something that looks legitimate.
National Slam the Scam Day initiative was created in 2020 to raise public awareness to combat Social Security-related scams. Last year, it expanded to include other government imposter scams as reported losses from consumers climbed to more than $446 million in 2021. According to the Federal Trade Commission, reported losses for 2022 are nearly $509 million. Fox 24 News is taking notice of the achievements of Generations for America.
