In this article, we introduce the notion of a scattered locally C*-algebra and we give the conditions for a locally C*-algebra to be scattered. Given an action α of a locally compact group G on a scattered locally C*-algebra A[τΓ], it is natural to ask under what conditions the crossed product A[τΓ]×αG is also scattered. We obtain some results concerning this question.
