September 07, 2017

Whenever a new government program is introduced, or when there are changes to an existing program, there can be confusion about what exactly is happening. Unfortunately, scammers may try to take advantage of that confusion in order to defraud consumers.

Confusion over the latest news on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) may cause scammers to attempt to steal money or personal information from those looking for answers or help. Better Business Bureau (BBB) cannot provide legal advice, but recommends that consumers avoid scams by proactively seeking competent legal assistance rather than reactively responding to unsolicited contact.
