A Message from the Coalition

line

Welcome to the Hamilton County Coalition to Stop Fraud, Scams & Abuse web site. Consumer fraud, identity theft and scams are widespread crimes that affect millions every year. But the current economic downturn has exacerbated the problem and created consumers that are more financially vulnerable than ever. Criminals often take advantage of these difficult economic times and exploit consumers in various fraudulent ploys, that cost consumers and their families to lose hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

As a result, we want to help Hamilton County residents learn how to stop fraud and scams by: 1) identifying potential fraud or scams, 2) learning how to protect yourself, and 3) reporting an instance of fraud should you become a victim.

We've worked hard to provide you with a comprehensive list of numerous types of fraud and scams that Hamilton County residents may encounter. Click here to download the Coalition's Comprehensive Community Plan.

The key to protect yourself from consumer fraud, identity theft and scams in our community is to educate yourself. To reach as much of our community as possible, our Coalition will conduct outreach activities and work with other community organizations to educate our residents.

Your feedback is welcome and necessary to reach our goals - please contact us with any suggestions for our Coalition!

To report a scam, call: Better Business Bureau of Cincinnati at (513) 421-3015.
