SALT LAKE CITY – The Better Business Bureau is warning voters of new scams, from robocalls offering a free cruise for taking a political survey to promises that President Obama will pay your utility bill.

The growing number of scams will likely continue up to the presidential election in November. The BBB says scammers use incentives based on what they think voters want to hear by focusing on hot topics such as health care, economic recovery and unemployment.
