Do NOT fall for a scam. Be aware.
If you receive a suspicious email the first thing you need to do is NOTHING.
Read the email carefully (It may have come to your Junk Folder).
Watch for typos. This often indicates that an email is fraudulent.
Financial Institutions or Government Agencies do not send emails asking for personal information or to verify your account.
If an email asks for ANY personal information ignore it.
If you see a pop-up window indicating that your computer has been locked and to call a toll-free number – DON’T
If an email or pop-up window requests that you take action i.e. call a toll-free number or click OK – DON’T
Should you be susceptible to a scam contact your credit card company immediately.
