    This is a great opportunity to make a large amount of cash quickly.
    I only need your number for one transaction and then it will be erased forever.
    Let me tell you about this vacation that I would like to take you on.
  • 6. I can get you a better price on this item, just give me your bank account information and let me handle everything for you.
    Some will even go so far as to draw you into a romantic relationship in order to get the resources they are after.
    Often times will try and manipulate the situation as if you are being wronged by those who are family and/or care for you.
  • 7. Do not hesitate to ask questions.
    Ask for credentials that might show who the person is.
    Always ask for references.
    If it feels like a scam, it probably is.
  • 8. Many companies, such as banks and credit card companies are posting “phsing” notices on their web pages when new scams seem to be arising.
    Don’t be afraid to call a company and ask if they are really making this offer.
  • 9. Never give your information out over the phone.
    Only use secure websites when paying a bill or banking online
    Change your passwords often to keep hackers from obtaining personal information
  • 10. The bottom line is listen and be aware of new individuals that come into your life quickly and seem to be overly friendly.
    Stay current with all of your financial assets and debts.
    It is easy to check your credit report, and once a year you can do so free to see if there is anything going on that you did not authorize.
