In an effort to raise awareness of scams targeting the Latino community, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has launched Impostores del Gobierno, its first fotonovela -or illustrated novel.
Impostores del Gobierno follows
the story of Sonia, a young woman who responds to a call from a man claiming to be government -and convinces her to send money. Sonia is seeing falling prey of the scam while going about the regular activities of a Latino woman, namely buying Latino food at a Latino food merchant.
The FTC says the story is based on actual complaints received by the FTC and offers practical advice on what to say when a call, text message or email from a fake government received.
