City says 'scram' to scammers

Working with the city's Consumer Affairs Department, law enforcement agencies from Long Island and Westchester County this month announced the results of a sting last month conducted by undercover inspectors.

City puts screws on scammers

The crackdown promises some relief to Queens families, who represent a disproportionately large share of the city's 1,100 victims who filed complaints last year.

Queens accounts for a third of complaints and seizures.

I live in Queens, and it appears that we are being targeted with scam telemarketers. Watch out for an illegal automated call from "Card Services." They try to get personal information so they can charge up your credit card. Don't know why someone can't catch these scumbags.
