It can happen to anyone. Becoming a victim of fraud can be life changing, not to mention embarrassing. In order to prevent fraud from happening to you, you should learn to recognize how, when, and where fraud occurs.
Today the computer is the most common medium for fraud attempts-through innocent emails from “nice” people or companies.
The door-to-door salesperson is one of the oldest ploys.
There are many fraud attempts carried out through the mail.
Also, numerous fraud schemes occur over the telephone.
These seemingly “nice” people or companies are looking for assistance, selling home repair services, promising winnings, asking to verify personal information, and much more. They’re con artists, trying to separate you from your money.
