As we approach Valentine’s Day, the Better Business Bureau is out with a scam alert involving romance.

WSIU's Brad Palmer talked with the BBB’s regional director Sydney Waters about how if someone offers you money for nothing, there’s probably a catch and scammers are actually out to trick you out of money.

As a news producer and news anchor on All Things Considered, Brad provides the listeners with a recap of the day's top local and state news as well as breaking news at any given time. Contact WSIU Radio at 618-453-6101 or email wsiunews@wsiu.org
