$16 billion was lost to scams in the U.S. in 2016.

Over 15 million people lost money to scammers in 2016.

Scams are a very real and extremely large problem in the U.S... and the problem is continuing to grow. Many people think:

  1. I will not be affected by scams; scams are not my problem.
  2. Scammers are easy to spot.
  3. I cannot protect myself anyway so there is no reason to concern myself with scams.
  4. There is no point in reporting scams.
