Common Consumer Scams
Investment and insurance scams aren’t the only things an Iowa Fraud Fighter needs to guard against. Be prepared to prevent and report consumer fraud. The Iowa Attorney General's Office (AG) is your resource to report common scams impacting consumers.
The AG’s mantra is: Stop, Think and Call. Don’t make quick decisions based on emotions. Ask for the offer in writing and sleep on it. Think it over and talk it over with someone you trust.
Call the Iowa Attorney General’s Office to help you investigate if the offer is legitimate or if it is a common scam. Fraudsters will have a harder time conning you out of your money if you proactively research common consumer scams in your area.
