The Federal Trade Commission has created a “teaser” website for a fictitious lending company that warns consumers about how easy it is to be fooled by scammers charging up-front fees for bogus loans.
The site also explains how to spot and avoid loan scams.
The website is part of a consumer education campaign to help consumers manage their money and learn to recognize scams.
