Internet Loan Scam…Heads Up!
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 – A South Bay woman called KUSI's Michael Turko when she got caught in an internet scam that took all of her money. Turko says she's struggling to get by and she thought a “government grant” to attend college would be just what she needed.
Her car is in the shop and she can't afford to get it out. She has training as a medical assistant but can't find a job. What she really wants to do is to go back to school for a nursing degree, so when she found an outfit on the internet promising help with government grants for higher education, she fell for it. Don't let 'em get you! Heads up!
