4. Avoid giving scammers your information.
Keep in mind that scammers are relentless when it comes to trying to access your account and personal information, and unfortunately, they are really good at tricking people into handing that information over willingly.
How to avoid it? Be hypervigilant whenever you receive an unsolicited message via text, voice, email, social media message, pop-up, etc. that asks you to submit personal information—be it contact info, financial info, or otherwise.
When in doubt, don’t trust it. Better to be cautious and safe than trusting and scammed.
Here’s what you can and should do: Take charge of the communication. End the unsolicited message, and then you reach out to the company in question using a legitimate communication channel—one you already know and trust.
If you fear that you may have shared your account or personal information with a scammer, contact your financial institution and the following credit bureaus to freeze your account and protect yourself from identity theft.
