Wallet Warnings arose out of a deep dive into consumer financial fraud in Shelby County. The Trustee received a small grant to take a hard look at it and create a strategic plan to address what was found. The Consumer Financial Fraud Idea Team did just that in late 2020 and early 2021. Wallet Warnings launched in November 2021 as a monthly OpEd about a hot consumer fraud issue impacting Shelby County Residents. Working closely with the Better Business Bureau, we provide real time information about what's happening and how to prevent it. We know you work hard for your money, and we want to make sure you keep it. The Trustee’s Office is responsible for safe-guarding the County’s money and we want to help you safeguard yours!
