Tips to avoid becoming a victim of fraud
Here are some general tips that may help in avoiding becoming a victim of fraud:
Delete emails from unknown parties. Don't even open them.
Do not provide personal information, account numbers, banking or credit card numbers, PINs, or log-on IDs through email links or pop-up windows. Either call the institution or go directly to their Web site at the URL you know to be correct.
Invest in anti-virus, spam-filtering, and anti-spyware protection.
Never give out any information unless you initiated the contact and are sure you know with whom you are dealing.
Fraudsters often create a sense of urgency to provoke you to take action immediately; this should be a warning flag to you.
Ask questions; if you are in doubt as to whether communications or offerings from a company, or from a person purporting to act on behalf of a company, are legitimate then be cautious.
Be suspicious of any programs that require any type of upfront fee.
It may sound like a cliché, but if an offer sound too good to be true it probably is.
