A recent report released by the Federal Trade Commission, “Combatting Fraud in African-American and Latino Communities,” found that these victims are targeted by fraud focusing on income and debt, and that victims under-report scams to the FTC. This webinar will address the unique challenges and barriers in serving minority communities, and will provide advocates with resources to better address fraud in these areas.
