Have you ever been the victim of a scam?
According to the Federal Trade Commission, more than 2.3 million cases of fraud and identity theft were reported in 2019. Beware of unsolicited contacts that create fear through threats or intimidation. Don’t let fear overrule logic if they demand immediate action.
Demands for upfront or monthly payments, wire, or gift card payments are common scam techniques. Text messages alerting inaccurate issues with your debit or credit cards are also a trap. Don’t respond, and never click on unknown links. Be wise! Proverbs says: “The prudent sees evil and hides himself.” (Proverbs 27:12 )
