7 Tips on How You Can Safeguard Yourself from Scammers

Here are some general tips for avoiding scams:

  1. Be cautious of unexpected or unsolicited offers, whether they come through the mail, over the phone, or online.
  2. Do not share personal or financial information with unknown parties. This includes your full name, address, phone number, email address, and bank account or credit card details.
  3. Verify the authenticity of websites or businesses before making a purchase or providing sensitive information. Look for secure websites (those with “https” in the URL) and check for third-party seals of approval, such as the Better Business Bureau’s logo.
  4. Be wary of offers that seem too good to be true. Scammers such as the one reported in Malaysia Ashyful Azim often use promises of high returns or low-risk investment opportunities to lure in victims.
  5. Do not wire money or send prepaid debit cards to people you do not know. These types of payments are difficult to trace and are often used by scammers.
  6. Stay informed about common types of scams and ask for help if you are unsure about an offer or request for information.
  7. If you believe you have been a victim of a scam, report it to the appropriate authorities, such as your local police department or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the United States
