My roommate works at the Municipal Court and told me that they’ve gotten a number of calls, inquiries, and complaints about government impostor scams. So I thought, I’d see if there was anything about it online in order to share the information with all of you. 

I was in luck! This handy page from the Federal Trade Commission walks you through the steps of recognizing a government impostor scam, gives you tips for how to beat them at their own game, and explains how to report it to authorities. 

All you have to do is scroll down the page to get this information, but you’ll also find a handy audio feed explanation under Related Items. All you have to do is click the Play button and the audio feed player will pop up so you can listen to the content.  

This is a great page to visit just to get up to date with the latest way that scammers are trying to con you. Go learn all about it today!
