ALBANY — The state Division of Consumer Protection is offering advice to help college students avoid scams.

“The best way for college students to avoid textbook, scholarship or rental scams is to be informed,” Secretary of State Robert J. Rodriguez. “This is an exciting time as students, often on their own for the first time, to learn how to balance their freedom and responsibilities. This new independence makes them targets for scammers.”
