Anti Fraud Tips

  • Never send money to people you have not met in person, especially if they ask you to use wire transfer, a prepaid debit card or a gift card.
  • Don’t click on links or open attachments in unsolicited email. Links can download malware onto your computer and steal your identity.
  • Don’t believe everything you see. Scammers are great at mimicking official seals, fonts and other details. Just because a website or email looks official, does not mean it is.
  • When shopping online, make sure the website has “https” in the URL and a small lock icon on the address bar. Even then, read reviews about the quality of the merchandise to avoid buying counterfeit goods.
  • Be extremely cautious when dealing with anyone you’ve met online. Scammers use dating websites, Craigslist, social media and many other sites to reach potential targets. They can quickly feel like a friend or a romantic partner, but that is part of the con.
  • Never share personally identifiable information with someone who has contacted you unsolicited, whether it’s over the phone, by email, on social media or at your front door. This includes banking and credit card information, your birth date and your Social Security number.
  • Don’t be pressured to act immediately. Scammers typically try to make you think something is scarce or a limited-time offer, but it’s never a good idea to make an important decision quickly.
  • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments for goods, services, taxes and debts. Do not pay by wire transfer, prepaid money card or gift card. Say no to cash-only deals, high-pressure sales tactics, high upfront payments, overpayments and handshake deals without a contract.
  • Whenever possible, work with local businesses that have proper identification, licensing and insurance, especially contractors who will be coming into your home or anyone dealing with your money or sensitive information.
  • Be cautious about what you share on social media and consider only connecting with people you already know. Be sure to use privacy settings on social media and online accounts.
