Scam Alert: Worth a reminder to parents and grandparents

Most of us aren’t likely to fall for something such as this, but sometimes our loved ones in different age groups do. It breaks my heart each time a senior cries on the phone to me because he or she has lost a few thousand dollars.

Here’s the latest warning from the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

It’s not often that I get to tell you something isn’t a scam: “ACT” letters #9NEWS

A local Realtor asked me to look into a letter he says several of his clients received from ACT claiming homeowners have a “scheduled interest reduction option on your mortgage.”

The letter asks homeowners to call an 800-number. I called it myself to see what the pitch is.

Steve told me I could pay off my mortgage much faster using their personal finance software which he said costs about $100 to set up and about $30 each month, no contract. He told me his company Accelerated Cash Flow Technology, and Accelerate Equity and Development have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau in Salt Lake City.
