Scam Prevention Tips:

  • Be cautious of unsolicited calls, emails, or messages asking for personal information or money.
  • Always verify the identity of the caller or sender. Hang up and call back using a legitimate phone number.
  • Don’t be pressured to make quick decisions.
  • Be wary if asked to pay via gift cards, wire transfers, or cryptocurrency.
  • Never share your social security number, bank account details, or other sensitive information with unknown or unverified sources.

If you or someone you know has been targeted by a scam, report it to the local authorities immediately.
