It’s New Year’s Resolution time. It’s time to make a commitment to be fraud aware in 2020. For the next 52 weeks, like clockwork, scammers will be on the prowl looking to steal our money or sensitive information. While there is no way to stop these attempts from happening, we can all take steps to make sure we don’t fall victim. Remember the basics: only share sensitive information when needed with people who you know and trust – like your doctor. Don’t click on web links from untrusted emailers, and if someone asks you to make a payment using a gift card, it is a scam.
