How To Protect Yourself From Scams
Scams can happen to almost everyone. Some scams are easily spotted but others may appear very much like genuine offers or bargains. Most scams need you to do something to make them work, they need you to undertake some sort of action such as giving away your personal information or something else. Read more for handy tips against scammers and how to stay clear of them.
There are a few golden rules:
- Monitor your bank account and your credit card account so you can see if something suspicious happens. When it does block your accounts immediately.
- If the offer looks to good to be true--- it probably is!
- There are very few ways to get rich quickly, so do not immediately believe someone if they say they have found an easy way to become rich.
- Never share your credit card details with people or businesses you do not trust. Look for website reviews on this website (srater.com) to make sure
the website is legit!
- Do not save any important data on your computer in text files, such as your pin code or other vulnerable information.
There are many more important tips we can give you which will help you deal with scammers. Never open an e-mail without verifying the link on a website such as SRater! Do not e-mail anyone your personal information, and do not choose passwords that are easy to guess, use symbols and random words -- not family members or birthdays. Remember, when choosing a password, length matters over complexity, because the longer the password the harder it is to bruteforce (a way of hacking a password). Click here
