Keeping a Close Eye on Your Finances
It was just a normal day of running errands for Debbie and her 4 kids. They went to the grocery store, and stopped to get gas on the way home. The next day, she checked her bank account and the balance seemed off.
Well, Debbie discovered that there was a card skimmer on the gas pump – and thieves were attempting to drain her entire bank account.
Sadly, this is a fairly common scam.
But did you know that keeping a close eye on your bank accounts is actually a great way to protect yourself from scams like these? Thankfully Debbie’s attention to detail helped her thwart the scammers.
Knowing where your money goes, and how much you should have in your accounts is important for us all.
