March 5th Marks National Consumer Protection Week

It’s National Consumer Protection Week, and while AARP is focused on protecting consumers year-round – this is a good time to highlight some key consumer protection tips. 

Tips on Protecting Yourself from Social Media Scams

Giving out personal or financial information to someone who contacts you is a high-risk proposition. Rather than clicking links from texts and emails from your bank or from businesses you have accounts with, go to your app if you have one, or to a web browser and type the address in yourself – that way you know you are going to the legitimate site.   Lastly, engage your inner skeptic when a communication produces a strong emotional response; we know scammers want us “under the ether” of emotion to get us to believe their lies.

Be a fraud fighter!  If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
