debt scamDebt relief is something that many Americans are searching for in today’s economy. With personal debt burdens on the rise and the overall increase in bankruptcy filings over the last few years, scam artists have begun using technology to target unsuspecting consumers looking for help. The risks for consumers seeking legitimate debt relief help have risen, but one new website was designed to do the opposite.

Technology Takes Over

The state of Massachusetts has begun to step up efforts for educating consumers about debt relief scam and policing potential scam artists. The state’s consumer protection office recently devised a plan to create several fake websites to attract consumers looking for debt relief help. The phony sites promise consumers help with debt relief, mortgage debt solutions, foreclosure alternatives and loan help. Other sites offer money saving deals, work from home offers or weight loss products.

The idea behind the websites is to attract consumers and warn them about seeking out such services that often lead to scams. If a consumer attempts to utilize the services offered by the site, or make a purchase, they are immediately directed to an educational website that outlines ways to spot online scams and fraudulent services. So far the website, http://topmassachusettsdeals.com has helped inform consumers and reduce the amount of cyber criminals operating to steal from victims.
