West Michigan residents slam the door on identity theft!

February 28, 2014

Residents of West Michigan, particularly Holland and Traverse City, are much less likely than most areas of the United States to be victims of consumer fraud and identity theft, according to statistics released this week by the Federal Trade Commission through its Consumer Sentinel annual report.  A wide number of government and non-profit organizations cooperate with the FTC in gathering this information, including the Better Business Bureau. 


"We know that the quality of life in West Michigan is excellent in many ways," said BBB President Phil Catlett, "and it is encouraging to see that consumer issues are less of a problem here than they are in many metropolitan areas across the country."
