The Better Business Bureau wants to warn residents of potential scams before they fall victim and lose their hard earned cash.
Mara Clingingsmith is with the BBB. She says last year they had over 110 million dollars that were reported lost. She thinks this number is only a fraction of the actual loss.
Clingingsmith shares a story of a St. Louis native that fell victim to the scam and lost big.
Clingingsmith warns residents to make sure they are not being scammed because once the payment is made residents will not see that money again.
Clingingsmith appeared as a guest on the NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show.
