Frauds and Scams
Every day Tennesseans receive offers that just sound too good to be true. In the past, these offers came through the mail or by telephone. Now the con artists and swindlers have found a new avenue to pitch their frauds - the Internet.
An interesting point about fraud is that it is a crime in which you decide on whether to participate. The following websites were developed to arm you with information so you don't fall victim to these Internet scams. Education, good judgment, and a healthy dose of skepticism are the best defenses against becoming a victim. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
