Job hunters and those struggling to make money and get out of debt were common targets of fraudsters, hackers and deceptive businesses in this tough economy.

It’s very unfortunate for our honest customers who have unknowingly gotten a hold of a bogus bill as you are now out the money. Here are a few quick and easy ways to determine if your bills are good.
