The council of Better Business Bureaus through its affiliates around the nation, recently processed over a quarter of a million complaints about bogus loan offers.
Scammers have targeted the billions of aid made available to individuals and businesses.
One prime target has been the stimulus checks issued by the IRS. Scammers have tricked Americans into forking over money or personal information, under the guise of getting their money faster. Those waiting for checks that were mailed have been particularly vulnerable.
Those receiving unemployment benefits have also been targeted. The scammers will pose as individuals helping to file for these benefits and then they steal their personal information.
Federal authorities have also uncovered scams from international organized crime rings trying to file fraudulent unemployment claims tied to the $600.00 Federal unemployment benefit.
Legitimate lending institutions do not require money in advance of granting a loan. Generally, they do not use the telephone or internet to solicit customers.
You should not accept telephone solicitations, mail offers or e-mails that are sent to you or your company. If you have employees, advise them of these and other potential scams.
In these unprecedented times, it is even more imperative to beware of lending scams and other fraudulent offers.
