Imposter Scam Complaints Surge


In May of this year, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says it received 46,000 impostor scam complaints. Older victims tend to lead to bigger paydays for crooks than younger victims. One of the most popular frauds is when scammers call pretending that they’re Medicare representatives or that they’re from a medical supply company. They really want your personal information.
