Fighting Consumer Fraud in South Carolina

South Carolina Public Radio News Service

  More than $2 million is lost to fraud in South Carolina every year, says Juliana Harris of the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs. The department tracks scams in the state, and receives 3,000 to 4,000 reports of these crimes each year. Harris lists some of the more common scams, tells how consumers can spot them, and how people can avoid being taken in by scammers.
