FOX 8 Defenders: Volunteers save consumers nearly $13k in January

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The FOX 8 Defenders saved consumers across our area $12,875 in January.  Volunteers with the National Council of Jewish Women who staff our consumer advocacy program answered more than 110 calls last month.

NCJW volunteers resolved a variety of complaints and educated consumers on con artists pretending to be from the IRS who threaten people over the phone with arrest if they don't wire money owed.  The IRS will never call for payment. 

If you've got a consumer concern, call the FOX 8 Defenders staffed with volunteers from the National Council of Jewish Women at 1-877-670-6397 or fill out an online complaint form.
