With people spending more time at home due to the ongoing pandemic, many are more available to respond to phone calls, texts, or online communications with scammers. Unsurprisingly, reports of fraud and scams increased nationally and at the local level in 2020. While some reported being victims of attempted unemployment compensation fraud locally, imposter scams seemed to be more prevalent. Typically, the most popular imposter scams are those related to trusted businesses, followed by impersonation of a romantic interest. Unfortunately, those falling for romance impersonation usually experience the greatest financial losses.
