Beware of predators who want a piece of your tax refund
Mar 19, 2017 7:11 AM -
People who don't have much money during the rest of the year can become big targets during tax refund season. For those living paycheck to paycheck, tax refunds -- which average around $3,000 -- may be the largest chunk of unobligated cash they see all year. Retailers hope to get some of that money, but so do debt collectors, buy-here-pay-here car lots and purveyors of interest-free loans that come with fat fees. People flush with cash need to proceed with caution.
