Max Armstrong shares some insight on recent fraud events

Max Armstrong has scams on his mind and he offers a warning. One was a fake ad placed in a newspaper for a tractor, and a fake website to take a person for more than $1,000. In another scam, a Kansas farmer found his broker account was empty due to an unscrupulous broker. Max offers advice on the issue, including an online site Broker Check which allows you to verify your broker's veracity.
