Better Business Bureau identifies top scams
If you get a call from a magazine sales person, be sure to ask them to send you the offer in writing before you provide your credit card number.
That's the advice from the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota, which says that magazine telephone scams are on the rise and predict they will be prevalent in 2011.
The BBB, which opened an office in downtown Fargo last fall, says it has received thousands of calls about scams this past year.
