Nessel said she is working with the state Legislature to create a monitoring team that will look for scammers. The crackdown also includes tools to report scam callers easier.

“When people are going to behave the worst is when they think no one is watching and no one is prosecuting them," Nessel said. "The message we want to send loud and clear is if you are engaged in this kind of illegal activity, we’re going to come after you.”

Report scam calls to the OVC Resource Center at the National Criminal Justice Reference Service at 800-851-3420 or online.
