The 2020 Census is almost here. Be ready to spot and avoid census scammers by signing up now for our free webinar. You’ll learn the kinds of questions census workers will—and won’t—ask, what kinds of census scams are out there and how to report them.
One of the most common scams is government impostors, where you may get a phone call, an email, or a visit to your home from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service or some other government agency. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission recently reported victims lost nearly $153 million to government impostor scams in 2019 – a staggering amount.
The biggest shopping season of the year is, unfortunately, also the biggest scamming season. Criminals are out in force during the holidays trying to steal your money and personal information. Learn about ways to help protect you and your loved ones.
