Find Fraud Before it Finds YOU

Discovering frauds and scams before clicking could possibly be one of the most useful tools an Internet user could have. Not only will it save you money, being aware of frauds can save time, frustration, and possibly your identity. Some ways to avoid fraud are:

  • NEVER respond to an email with personal information such as bank account numbers, address, social security number, etc.
  • Research the company and their customer ratings to make sure that you won't become the example of fraud.
  • Use common sense: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
