CLEVELAND, OH (2/20/11) - My guest David Weiss, President of the Better Business Bureau of Greater Cleveland, and I talked about how consumers can protect themselves from con-artists.  He said this time of year, with W-2s coming in the mail, folks have to be much more careful. 

We also talked about how scammers target the elderly often offering to fix their driveways and roofs only to take hundreds if not thousands of dollars without doing the work for which they were paid.  

We discussed the importance of people calling the Better Business Bureau before they buy, basically, investigate before you invest. 

We talked about what services can be obtained for free instead of someone getting ripped off by scammers who charge huge amounts of money. 

Weiss emphasized the importance of checking your credit report at least once a year, being aware of ID theft and others scams, some coming from overseas.  For more information on the BBB contact the organization at info@cleveland.bbb.org or call (216) 241-7678.
