Do you know what scams people fall for most often? Could you recognize a scam if someone were targeting you?
In the latest episode of the IPA Payments Pod, Melissa “Mel” Trumpower the Executive Director of BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, discusses the findings from the Better Business Bureau’s Scam Tracker survey.
She talks about the most common types of frauds, how different types of scams target different demographics, and why losing money is not the only risk for people. The research includes information on the demographics of the victims and the vectors of approach.
