Since the start of COVID friends and loved ones have increasingly fell victim to financial scams perpetrated in person, virtually, or via phone. Cases of fraud have skyrocketed during the pandemic, and many people have become vulnerable due to isolation and increasingly complex schemes using rapidly advancing technology. Last year and in the first half of 2021, hundreds of fraud cases were reported to New Jersey law enforcement, costing the victims more than $2.9 million.
