Recently a new client confided in me that he had been the victim of a scam over the phone. By not catching it in time, he now owes nearly $30,000 on credit cards, which the credit card companies will not take responsibility for, since they were legitimate purchases the client made, not realizing that he was being scammed. The police offered him little hope that the perpetrators would be caught or that any money could be recovered.
Although it boggles my mind as to how these types of things can happen, I know that they do happen every day. Today’s blog links to a good article from The National Council on Aging.
