How to avoid On-line Frauds or Scams?
Criminals may try to contact you by email, through websites (blogs, social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin etc.), via SMS or even by phone. They will show some attractive things or promises like,
- You have won the lottery…
- Your account has been hacked but we have a remedy and act now or it'll be too late….
- Business opportunities like help someone to receive big amount of money from a trustee. All you need to do is that you allow your bank account to receive the money and you will get a good cut of the money….
Do not fall for any of the above scams. If an email attachment looks suspicious, don't open it. Don't install software unless it comes from a website you trust (like this one). If it doesn't feel right, take your time.
