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.
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.
