A major data breach has helped create a new tool to help you fight back against scammers.

The Better Business Bureau just launched Scam Tracker, a website that lets you see what scams are hitting your neighborhood.

The idea came out of the massive Target data breach.

Target joined forces with the BBB to give consumers a way to share their stories with each other.

The BBB said it hopes people will use the site more to prepare rather than report something after they’ve been scammed.
