Spring is the time of year for scammers and swindlers to show up, at your door, on the phone or in your email.

  Spring not only brings blooming flowers and warmer weather, it?'s also the high season for swindles and scams, from bogus quick tax refund offers to door-to-door solicitors with seemingly great deals on home and yard repairs. Amber Hunt, consumer advocate reporter with The Cincinnati Enquirer is back with us to discuss the paper'?s watchdog efforts and some of the more common scams and frauds to be on the lookout for, especially at this time of year.
