Spotting and Avoiding Scams in Our Communities

Tweet [1]

Community Media Workshop recently hosted a news briefing for ethnic media organizations on spotting and avoiding scams in our communities in partnership with New America Media [2] and the Federal Trade Commission [3].

Consumer fraud is an enormous problem in our communities nation-wide, one that is particularly harmful for and prevalent in communities of recent immigrants.

A round table discussion followed introductory remarks by the panelists. Afterward, journalists had the opportunity to meet with and interview the panelists and over a dozen community organizations and advocacy groups. We look forward to seeing their coverage of this critical issue.
