Happy Friday, folks! Here's a link to our free e-newsletter for August. Lots of great tips in here - including tips on shopping at the State Fair! Due to an issue with our vendor, some people may have received a whole bunch of copies of our newsletter. For that, we do apologize. It's a good newsletter, but one copy is sufficient. http://go.bbb.org/2c7MUAr

Another fraudulent online entity claiming to sell pups has been brought to our attention: Active Pug Home. They SAY they're in St. Cloud - but they're not. A good way to avoid this scheme is to watch for any requests to wire funds. Garbled grammar like you see below (on a company website) is another telltale sign. We are warning people about this bogus online entity and others like them. bbb.org/minnesota/business-reviews/business-services-general/active-pug-home-in-saint-cloud-mn-1000003912

We were featured on KARE 11 yesterday and discussed something called the "Invulnerability Illusion." This is the view many of us have, that scams can't happen to us. Unfortunately, they can - and do!
Some surprising results from a recent study the Better Business Bureau performed about scams and who they affect most. While the BBB expected seniors would be the demographic that loses the most money, the study revealed millennials are actually more likely to lose money to scams.

A major BBB study on scams says...Millennials are most at risk from scams? It's true! You can read all about it right here!
New BBB research shows optimism bias is widespread; we all think others are more vulnerable… and scammers count on that

It astonishes us to type these words, but in just over one week your BBB will be at the Minnesota State Fair! Once again, we'll be set up in the Education Building, handing out BBB merchandise and registering people for chances to win a Fitbit and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet! We hope you'll come see us!

We spoke with Valley News Live earlier this week about bogus IRS calls people continue to receive (demanding immediate payment). Would you believe there's a version of this scam targeting college students now and that the scammers are trying to collect payment in iTunes gift cards?! Believe it.
Fargo Police have received numerous calls of IRS scams being attempted in the area.

We announced yesterday that our CEO, Dana Badgerow, will be retiring at the end of this year. Though we will miss her, we're excited for what the future holds for her and also, thanks to her leadership, looking forward to what lies ahead for our organization! Here's the scoop via Minneapolis-St Paul Business Journal!
Badgerow joined the Better Business Bureau in 2009 and helped move its headquarters to Burnsville.
