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.

We received a call from a senior this week wanting to know how they could identify fraudulent sweepstakes offers. There are two things to keep in mind as far as that. 1) You can't win a contest you didn't enter. 2) If you have to pay money upfront to claim your alleged winnings (for 'taxes,' 'fees' or 'insurance') you haven't won ANYTHING.

We issued a warning yesterday in regard to highly suspect 'student loan forgiveness' offers targeting people nationwide - particularly students and people who attended small business, community and specialty colleges. Please have a look!
Based on a report from a Twin Cities resident, Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is issuing a warning to current and former students of community, specialty and business colleges in the region about loan forgiveness offers referencing the schools they’re currently attending or attended previously.
