Tonight on AC360°, Friday fraudsters! Hard times are boom times for scammers who want to steal your money. The recession has only made them more creative. Tonight Joe Johns shows you the ploys these crooks are using – and how you can protect yourself. You may have received some of these calls and emails. They seem to be everywhere these days. We want to keep the live blog on this one topic. So, please share your thoughts on recession scams below.
