The Scam Patrol Arrives on MainStreet

Our reporters will be doing the legwork.
Publish date:

MainStreet is excited to roll out a series of new features and site upgrades in 2009. One of the first new columns is MainStreet's Scam Patrol, a regular series that seeks to help you make the most of your money by avoiding the Madoffs of the world, you know, the money managers and investment advice givers who make promises that sound amazing, if only there was someone you could trust to double check what's being pitched to see if it is legit.

That's where MainStreet's Scam Patrol comes in. Our reporters will be doing the legwork to make sure you make decisions that help you maximize your money. Check out our first Scam Patrol which takes a look at a government "loophole" that allegedly pays out up to $8,881 per month. Sounds good right? A little too good perhaps.

As always, let us know what you think or what investment offering you want MainStreet to look into next.
