Make a commitment to be fraud aware

Thursday, February 6, 2020 by The Press in News Briefs

AARP

It’s New Year’s Resolution time. Time to make a commitment to be fraud aware in 2020. For the next 52 weeks, like clockwork, scammers will be on the prowl looking to steal our money or sensitive information. While there is no way to stop these attempts from happening, we can all take steps to make sure we don’t fall victim. Remember the basics: only share sensitive information when needed with people who you know and trust – like your doctor; don’t click on web links from untrusted emailers and if someone asks you to make a payment using a gift card, it is a scam.

Credit repair scams

Thursday, February 6, 2020 by The Press in News Briefs

If you’re like a lot of Americans, you spent a lot of money during the holiday season and you might be in the mood to tackle your debt in the New Year. Getting yourself out of debt is hard work. Be wary of offers of guaranteed quick fixes. Con artists prey on consumer’s frustration over finances by offering the keys to getting your finances in order. These offers usually involve up-front fees, bad advice like stopping communication with your creditors and vague details on what services they actually provide.
