Spot the Warning Signs:

Smart People Fall for Scams Every Day

Lower your chances of falling victim to fraud:

  1. Never send money to people you haven’t met in person.
  2. Never send money to pay for taxes or fees on lottery or prize winnings.
  3. Never send money to pay for fines or warrants to government or law enforcement agencies.
  4. Never send money for an emergency situation without verifying that it’s a real emergency.
  5. Just because you can withdraw money for a check you received and deposited, doesn’t mean the check is good.  It can take weeks for a check to bounce.
  6. Never send a money transfer for online purchases.
