"We must work to inform our citizens of the various schemes being perpetrated by criminals and the Attorney General's office is a tremendous state resource that helps consumers and protects them from such fraudulent practices," Haine said.

"We are here today to educate and advocate to make sure that people are aware of these scams and the help that is available," Attorney General Madigan said. "We want people to be able to turn to us for that help."
