Amount of money lost has increased
MANCHESTER, N.H. —
Newly released data from the Federal Trade Commission reveals cases of fraud in New Hampshire are on the decline but the amount of money victims are losing is on the rise.
According to the FTC, nearly 8,000 reports of fraud were reported in the Granite State in 2022. That’s 2,000 reports fewer than in 2021 and it’s also the first time the total declined since 2018.
Officials said New Hampshire fraud victims last more than $18 million in 2022, almost a $4 million jump from the year prior.
