Contest/ Need Help Fraud

By: Group 4

What is it?

When someone is trying to trick you into thinking you've won something. For example, your browsing on a website and theres a pop-up that may state something like " Congratulations! You're our 300th user! You win a free laptop!". People do this, so you give away credit card and banking information.

How to Avoid It

If the website asks for your credit card or banking information, and your not familiar with the site, it's most likely not real and/or trustable to contain all your information.
