Ripped off! : a servicemember's guide to common scams, frauds, and bad deals

by Michael Archer. American Bar Association. 2014.
297 pages.

The author of this title has over 20 years of legal experience with the Marine Corps. As he states in the foreword, he has seen members of the military routinely targeted in scams and various abusive commercial practices. He first looks at why troops might be targeted before going into detail on various abusive practices, such as payday and high-interest loans, life insurance sales, internet/telephone/mail scams, identity theft, student loans, and a handful of automobile-related scams or ripoffs. This is a great resource for anyone in the military or anyone who advocates for military members.
