Be on the lookout for an increase in email and phone scams. We are seeing more and more scam attempts. Never give out personal information such as your address, birth date, SSN, bank account information, or debit/credit card information. Do not allow scammers any access to your online banking, computer, or mobile phone. Don’t call or email the person back. Other telltale signs that you are involved in a scam are being asked to purchase gift cards and/or being told by the person on the line not to tell anyone. Always remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
