Attorney General helps fight scams

Attorney General Ken Paxton alerts us about scams in Texas. He starts by identifying a loan scam, operating illegally in magazine ads, in a newspaper’s classifi ed section, emails, or the United States Postal Service (USPS). It is very simple to detect the illegal notices because they ask for an upfront fee to be paid. The fee is established in the ads which carry promises like no credit check is necessary. Reading between the lines, so-to-speak, the readers might think the fee is to offset the risk factor connected with clients with poor or no credit rating in place.
