Protecting you and your money in a turbulent economy
With skyrocketing costs on everything from food to utilities, families losing their homes, retirement accounts shrinking and millions of Americans without a job, it's no wonder that Washingtonians are feeling swamped by the wake of the economic downturn. To make matters worse, crooks and swindlers have emerged with a new crop of scams and schemes designed to take advantage of today's turbulent economy.
