COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The recession has left millions of folks without a job, but scam artists on the other hand are still fully employed.
Officials with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants says the key is to not allow crooks to steal what you have left.
Experts say you should particularly be on the lookout for fake companies that offer to repair your credit.
Con artists claim to be able to help you wipe the slate clean, and it seems legit because there are credit counseling agencies that actually offer debt counseling.
But don't be confused, it will cost you more in the long run!
