OKLAHOMA CITY -

It seems like we hear about a new scam in this country every day. But now the Better Business Bureau is providing a new tool to help consumers from becoming scam victims.

The service is called the "Scam Tracker." The program documents thousands of reports of rip-offs nationwide. There's everything from credit card and charity scams to fake lotteries. Consumers can click on the map to see what specific scams are happening in their area.

"Scams have been around forever but with the advent of technology they've exploded and we're now using technology to catch the scammers," said Mary Power, BBB President and CEO.

Information posted on the site is also shared with law enforcement agencies. The BBB hopes by listing each rip off report, it will hopefully keep others from becoming victims of a scam.
