Consumer Fraud in the United States $195.00
Editors: Jane M. Monroe
Book Description:
An estimated 13.5 percent of U.S. adults - 30.2 million consumers - were victims of one or more consumer fraud schemes during calendar year 2004. Some of the top consumer fraud schemes are: fraudulent weight-loss products; fraudulent foreign lotteries and buyer's club memberships; fraudulent prize promotions; fraudulent work-at-home programs; charity fraud and telephone scams.
