As someone who is out here on the front lines covering consumer scams I can tell you it is hard to help consumers, even elderly, to get help from any place.

State regulators have their hands full and tight budgets seem to have restricted services.

If any law school out there wants to actively take these cases then please contact me or follow our consumer complaint feed which lists the complaints age. Contact me for specifics of any complaint. Follow the scam feed at

I would LOVE to find a place to direct all the consumers that are getting scammed and contacting me. Right now I send them to all the logical places but more specific help is needs to help address all the victims.

Frankly, the scammers appear to be winning most of the time. By the time the regulators accumulate enough cases the scammers close down and open under a new name and in a new location.

If any law school wanted to be nimble, fast and proactive we could stop a lot of these scams before piles of victims accumulate.
