Life-Shattering Scams: Could It Happen to You?
It's a show that will have you thinking twice before ever signing on a dotted line again.
Every day there's a new headline about a scam you need to be worried about; scams targeting victims via email, social media, phone, dating sites and even door-to-door. These scammers are after your money and your trust. In this episode you'll get the information you need to keep you, your family and your bank account safe.
Today we're meeting victims who say they were not only left with empty pockets, but broken hearts as well, including a couple who allegedly spent $12,000 on an adoption that never happened, a man who was allegedly robbed of his rights as a father, and a woman who claims she unwittingly signed away the rights to their own child.
Plus, it's a home improvement story gone disastrously wrong. Anderson meets a woman on the brink of bankruptcy after having spent approximately $50,000 to fix up her house. She was told by the contractor it would be two weeks. Almost a year later, and after taking out two loans, she is forced to finish the home herself.
Sometimes they are promising services on your family home, or carrying out the most unthinkable deceptions, like taking a baby away from someone.
