Be a Fraud Fighter

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, scams have surged.  Extended periods of isolation and increased time online during the global health crisis have made Kentuckians more vulnerable to attempts of fraud.  During the pandemic, Kentuckians reported losing over $17 million to scams.  To address this increase, Attorney General Cameron launched the “Be a Fraud Fighter” campaign to put fraudsters on notice that their actions will not be tolerated in Kentucky.  The campaign encourages Kentuckians to report scams to the Attorney General’s Office.  You can be a Fraud Fighter by taking the following steps:
