How to avoid and be aware of what fraud is.

Fraud...what is it?

Fraud is an intentional deception for gain. Here are a few examples of what fraud may "look" like:

  • Email or text message from the bank or other source looking for information such as account number or personal information.
  • Online retailer selling products to you, which you will never receive.
  • "Work at home" scheme in which you are being schemed and you are given instructions to scheme others.

Stay away fraud!

Simple ways to avoid fraud.

  • DO NOT reply to emails or texts asking for account numbers or information.
  • DO SOME RESEARCH! If you are not sure...find out!
  • If it is too good to be true, simply STAY AWAY.
