Be careful doing these things online to limit risk of being scammed | #socialmedia | #hacking | #aihp

The Better Business Bureau has an online tool “Scam Tracker” that collects and presents scam data in a searchable online “heat map,” showing users the number and types of scams and hoaxes being reported in their communities.

It is sophisticated enough to track that information down to the zip code. The data is derived from reports provided by consumers and businesses.

Using that information, the BBB develops it’s annual “Scam Tracker Risk Report”, an in-depth look at how scams are perpetrated, who is being targeted, which scams have the greatest impact and how scams affect different age groups.

The report was released last week. It showed online shopping scams top the list of scams that pose the most significant risk to consumers, impacting the most age groups.
