Don't Get Scammed

There are many types of scams. I get some type of scam phone call or email everyday. There are steps that you can take to avoid being a victims of these scams. 3 types of scams that I've heard about or seen lately are Online Dating, Tech Support and "You've Won" Scams

 

Online Dating Scams

 

You meet someone online. They seem like the person of your dreams. Soon you move from online to emails or phones calls. They tell you that they're in love with and want to marry you, but live far away due to business or the military.

 

Then BAM! They start asking for money. There are many reasons that they give for needing this money. It may be for an emergency surgery or even a plane ticket to visit you. 

 

Often times, these people use fake dating profiles and pictures. They disappear with your money, and you have no way of tracking them down. 

 

Here's what you can do:

 

Don't send them money. If you already have been, stop! Never wire money, put money on a prepaid card or send cash to someone you meet online.

 

Tech Support Scams

 

You get a pop-up or other message from someone saying that your computer is infected. The message may look like it's from Apple, Microsoft or your internet service provider. They tell you to call a number or click a link to get the issue resolved.

 

These are scammers who are trying to steal you credit card and bank info. They could also be trying to get access to your computer so that they can install malware on it. Malware could let them see everything on your computer.

 

Here's what you can do:

 

Don't call the phone number or click the link. Don't give any money, credit card numbers or bank info to anyone who contacts you. Never give anyone control of you computer.

 

"You've Won" Scams

 

Someone calls or emails you telling you that you've won a prize. It could be a lottery, sweepstakes or trip. Sometimes they tell you that your name and phone number have been randomly selected to receive a grant. 

 

Here's the catch: they tell you that you have to pay a fee or taxes to claim your prize. They ask for your credit card number or bank info so that they can steal your money. You never get any prize. 

 

Here's what you can do:

 

Keep your money and information to yourself. Never give your financial information to or wire money to anyone who contacts you.

 

Pass this information on to a friend. You can help others by reporting scams to the Federal Trade Commission.

Protect your identity and credit. Plus receive $1m in coverage.

Have tech support on standby for all of your technology devices.

 

1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or TTY 1-866-653-4261

 

Your complain could help stop scammers before they get a chance to take someone's hard earned money.
