New scams making the rounds in Greater Victoria

There’s a good chance you or someone you know has or will have a run-in with a scammer this year.

VICTORIA — There’s a good chance you or someone you know has or will have a run-in with a scammer this year.

The Better Business Bureau of Vancouver Island works to help consumers avoid scams of all kinds from the door-to-door handyman to telemarketing scams.

On Wednesday, the BBB released its annual Top 10 Scams list.

“There not much of anything new – just a variation of what we’ve seen before, but they’re all scams,” said BBB chief executive officer Rosalind Scott.

The Bureau logs every scam that it receives throughout the year by phone, email and website.
