Sign up to connect your community with fraud resources at: https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/community When you sign up to be a Report Fraud Community Advocate, your organization will get: - A custom Community Advocate link that you can use to submit reports on behalf of your clients - Next steps tailored to your client's report to try to recover money lost - Aggregated data and statistics about the reports submitted through your organization's link - Periodic emails about reporting trends in your geographic area - Access to training videos, learn about upcoming webinars, and consumer education resources Transcript: At the Federal Trade Commission, we’re proud of the work we’ve done with legal services organizations. I want to tell you about the latest way we’re working together to help protect your clients. The Community Advocate Center, we hope, is a tool that will make it easier for you and your colleagues to help clients report fraud to the FTC. If you become a Report Fraud Community Advocate, you’ll get a custom link that lets you submit reports to the FTC on behalf of your clients. This does two things: first, it flags the reports so our investigators can look closely at them as they build cases. Second, it aggregates the reports into data that we can feed back to you about the reports your organization submitted. Which can be helpful for grant writing. As you move through the reporting process, you’ll get some next steps tailored to your client’s experience, with a focus on getting their money back, whenever possible. And, of course, by helping your clients report, you’re helping stop fraud in your community. Learn more and sign up at ReportFraud.ftc.gov/community. If it’s been a while since you’ve reported to the FTC, things have changed and gotten easier than ever. Check out ReportFraud.ftc.gov to see how easy it is to report a scam or bad business practice now. Every day, we all work to help people affected by scams and bad business practices. I hope the Report Fraud Community Advocate Center helps you help your clients. Knowing what’s happening in your community matters to us. Get started at ReportFraud.ftc.gov/community. And, if this was useful, please like and share it in your network. ****************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.

FTC Video: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
