Look for Warning Signs

Look for these warning signs to avoid fraud:

  • Someone you don't know asks you to send money or money orders to claim a prize, lottery, credit card, loan, or other valuable offer.
  • Someone you don't know offers you the chance to receive a credit card, loan, prize, lottery, or other valuable item, but asks you for personal data to claim it.
  • An unknown caller claiming to be a lawyer or in law enforcement offers to help you get your money back (for a fee).
  • The deal is only good "for today" or a short period of time.
  • The seller offers "free gifts" in return for a minimum effort or a fee.
  • A "repair person" suddenly finds a dangerous defect in your car or home.
  • You are given little or no time to read a contract.
  • A sale item is suddenly unavailable but a "much better item" is available for slightly more money.
  • Someone is trying to scare you into purchasing credit protection plans.
  • The solicitation looks like a government document and suggests contest winnings or unclaimed assets are yours for a small fee. (The government doesn't solicit money from citizens.)
  • You are asked for your bank account or credit card number.

Quick Tips for Avoiding Fraud

  • Don't give out personal information. Be suspicious of anyone you don't know who asks for your Social Security number, credit card and bank account details, date of birth, etc.
  • Don't be intimidated. Be suspicious of calls or e-mails that want you to provide or verify personal information immediately. Tell them you're not interested and hang up or don't reply to the e-mail.
  • Monitor your accounts. Review bank and credit card statements carefully. Report unauthorized transactions to your financial institution immediately.
  • Use a shredder. Tear or shred credit offers you receive in the mail, bank statements, insurance forms and other papers with personal information.

Fraud Alert

Be on the lookout for these common scams:

  • Fake Check Scams- You discover the check is worthless after you've deposited it and wired money back to the crook.
  • Sweetheart Swindles- Criminals befriend you in online chat rooms or dating sites, then request money as a favor or for accident or travel expenses.
  • Auctions- Beware of fraudulent sellers and bogus merchandise.
  • Lotteries- Don't fall for foreign lotteries; they're illegal to play and may be a scam.
  • Advance Fee Loans and Credit- It's illegal for telemarketers to charge a fee in advance for help getting a loan.
