FOX 8 Defenders: Volunteers save consumers nearly $7k in April

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The FOX 8 Defenders save consumers nearly $7,000 in April.  Volunteers with the National Council of Jewish Women handled 169 consumer cases and saved viewers $6,950. 

The total savings in the first four months of 2016 adds up to nearly $125,000.  Many of the calls and emails last month involved IRS phone scam complaints after a Plaquemines Parish man shared how he lost thousands of dollars and how the con artists use technology to fool you. 

The FOX 8 Defenders staffed with volunteers from the National Council of Jewish Women also field consumer complaints at 1-877-670-6397 or fill out an online complaint form.
