Careful! New Scam Tricks Parents Into Buying Baby Formula That Never Comes


The baby formula shortage has parents stressed and their desperation has become a new target for scammers.

The Federal Trade Commission is warning parents that scammers are taking this opportunity to trick parents into paying a high price for baby formula that will never arrive. The scammers will make fake websites or profiles on social media by using product images and household-name formula brands to make it seem legit.

"Someone is claiming to sell that product and they are asking people to pay using a PayPal or Venmo or a cash app-type of system. And once that money is paid out, and the order is placed, they never end up receiving that product," said Sandra Guile, a BBB spokesperson. Head to ABC 7 for more information about the new baby formula scam.
