A new local Consumer Fraud Task Force, organized by the Tri-State Better Business Bureau, had its first meeting on September 15, 2015. Attendees at the meeting represented the FTC, the Indiana Attorney General’s Office, the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office, Indiana State Police and Evansville Police Department. Several other organizations were invited but unable to attend. At the first meeting participants discussed various scams affecting members of our community. They agreed that the number one fraud occurring right now is the phony IRS collection scheme.
