Fraud

Intentional Deception for Gain

What is Fraud?

Fraud can be a fake email or text from your "bank account". It can be buying something online and never receiving it. It can even be buying a kit for an easy at-home job that doesn't actually exist.


What It Looks Like

Fraud looks innocent-- an email from your "bank account", a text telling you that you've won a gift card, or an ad about making $3,000 through an at-home job.


Avoiding Fraud

There are ways to avoid fraud-- don't reply to emails asking for personal information, look at customer reviews before buying something, and if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
