It is Consumer Protection Week and Toledo Better Business Bureau President Dick Epstein joined us on WFIN to talk about scams. He said that you shouldn’t trust caller ID when you receive a phone call from someone you don’t know.

Epstein said that scammers will often try to get you to believe they are the IRS or law enforcement and that you will be put under arrest. He said the best thing to do is ignore the call and let the authorities know.

Epstein added that businesses can unethically buy reviews as well.

Epstein said that you can visit the BBB’s website to find accurate ratings of businesses through their investigations. This will help you determine if you can trust a business.
