Meeting Room 3


From the IRS phone scam, to lottery and sweepstakes scams, to the so-called grandparent scam, it appears that imposter frauds and other criminal scams are more active than ever — and are preying on potential victims in New Jersey through phone calls, emails, and other means. Don’t get scammed!! Please join us as a representative from the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs tells us how to AVOID GETTING SCAMMED.

The Division of Consumer Affairs is your resource for important consumer information. For information about a New Jersey business or professional license, or to report suspected fraud, call our Consumer Service Center at 800-242-5846.

For regularly updated Consumer Alerts and other information, check the website, www.NJConsumerAffairs.gov.

Melanie Hazim joined the Division of Consumer Affairs in January of 2016.  As the Outreach Director for the Division, Melanie is responsible for implementing the Division’s missions and goals to protect New Jersey’s residents from becoming victims of consumer fraud.  She acts as the main speaker for outreach events, reaching all kinds of groups including seniors and other populations that can find themselves a target of scam artists.  She also directs the New Jersey High School Consumer Bowl and works with her team to educate students across the state about consumer issues and scams they may face in their future in a fun, game show setting.
