How do I protect myself from unfair debt collection?

Unfair debt collection is a troubling issue throughout the United States, and can cause a great deal of stress and worry among debtors. To try and reduce this problem, there is a law put in place called The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which has a large amount of protections and rights for those in debts.

Legal protections for victims of online scams

If you are not so familiar with using the internet, or you are just beginning to get the hang of things, you may come across offers that seem too good to be true. The problem is that they usually are too good to be true. There are many practices on the internet that try to lure people in by offering fantastic deals, prices, jobs or investment opportunities. Many thieves and criminals will use this as a way to try to take your details, possibly including your bank account details. This can lead to very serious financial consequences for you.

Some false advertising pitfalls all small businesses should avoid

Few small businesses can afford an advertising staff that is well versed as to how to market a product or service. Instead, many business owners have to rely on their own efforts to get the word out. It's at a time like this, when they're either stretched thin or venture into unfamiliar territory, that a business owner is most apt to make a poor decision. It's then that they're most vulnerable to get into hot water for false advertising.

Did your insurance company fraudulently deny your claim?

The health insurance industry is fraught with instances of fraud. Sometimes, consumers commit white collar fraud against the insurance companies. Other times, it's the insurance companies committing fraud against the consumers. For example, imagine you receive a $20,000 hernia surgery, and suddenly you find out that your insurance company is only going to pay for half of it, but this goes against your agreement.

Quick stats about elder fraud and scams

Elder fraud is a serious issue that persists year after year, despite the efforts of family members, organizations and even financial institutions. The elderly are often targets for these financial schemes because of their potential isolation, possible mental difficulties later on in life, and the simple fact that they are more likely than younger people to have exploitable wealth.
