BBB serving Greater Cleveland launches scam alert text service

 Want to be the first to know about the latest telemarketing scam hitting the area?  Or be alerted to deceptive door-to-door sales? Or phony charity soliciting? Or "too good to be true" free offers?  Its as easy as signing up for Better Business Bureau's new Scam Alerts delivered by text messages. 

To sign up - simply text SCAM to 24587.  We will keep you informed of the latest scams and help you avoid becoming the next victim. 

Scams targeted at seniors are also available. If you are a caregiver, senior services provider, or even a senior yourself - text SENIORS to 24587.  Seniors are a vulnerable population and need the added protection of being warned about deceptive "free" medical alert devices, phony charities, investment fraud, and other relevant issues.

 

There is no fee to sign up for BBB scam alerts. Carrier text messaging rates may apply. If you wish to discontinue the alerts, simply text "STOP" to 24587.
