A video from the MA Attorney General’s Office 

In this informative 45 minute video presentation, Tim Depin of the MA Attorney General’s Office, discusses common scams and how best to avoid them, plus steps you should take if you think you’ve been scammed.

His best advice: “If you think it’s too good to be true or if you think it’s too bad (as in scare tactics) to be true, then run the other way! And contact the authorities, both local and us.”
