Better Business Bureau launches new tool to protect against scams

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, MI (WNEM) -

The Better Business Bureau has launched a new program called Scam Tracker.

The program is designed to be a repository for illegal activities targeting consumers and businesses.

Scam Tracker is on the Better Business Bureau’s website and includes an interactive map with hotspots. Consumers and businesses can see the number of scams in those areas and when clicked, rank them by zip codes.

The tracker only works if consumers and businesses report scams and enter information about fraud attempts.

The Better Business Bureau is working with the Federal Trade Commission to see how the data can be used to help consumers and businesses on a national scale.
