The Consumer Team talk radio program will feature 2 special segments regarding how to fight back against consumer scams.  The special program will air Saturday, September 8 from 3-5PM Central on 1080 KRLD Radio, Dallas, Texas.

Jeff Blyskal, Senior Editor with Consumer Reports Magazine, will be a featured guest on The Consumer Team.   Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, said the segments will address new scams hitting the marketplace.  “The bad guys are finding new, creative and pretty frightening ways to steal our hard earned money.  Jeff Blyskal, because of his involvement in Consumer Reports Magazine’s October feature on scams, is on the front lines with the latest information on scams.  I believe our listeners will benefit from hearing this fresh information regarding the strategies that scammers are using.”

Thomson added that ‘last dollar’ scams, where thieves target people who are nearly out of money, is very troubling.  “The thought of a scam targeting someone who’s already struggling financially is unconscionable.  Shining a bright light on these unscrupulous people and their tactics is a foundational purpose of The Consumer Team radio program.”
