You’re in the middle of your day and you receive an email. A company or organization is asking you to go to a website to enter your personal information to verify your account.
It seems legitimate, but you wonder, is it a scam?
While some scams seem obvious, others can be confusing to anyone without the proper information.
Having that trusted official information on the latest scams and how to report them is one of the best ways to protect your hard earned money and safeguard your private information.
