Don’t get scammed

Banks, government and companies will not ask you to pay a bill on the phone. Don’t send money or give out personal information over the phone or by text.


Scammers can put up fake caller ID information. It may look like it’s from someone you know when it’s not. Don’t believe caller ID.


These methods of payment don’t provide fraud protection. Real companies won’t ask you to do this. Know the risks of wiring money and gift cards.
