Identity theft - many faces

You never get to know who they are – they want to know a lot about you. Don’t respond.

The moment you read and print the attachment the scam artist has begun the process of gathering information about you.

The cardinal rule on this stuff is Don’t.

If in doubt ask someone what it means.

Just don’t clock on the read button and don’t print the document.

    The cardinal rule is: Stop. Think. Does the information given make sense? Are there errors of spelling and grammar? Do not phone a number contained in the message, because a good scammer will have set up an agent to convince you to act. Try another way to verify. Ask a friend for advice. Unfortunately, people who are new to the country, or have English as a second language, are especially vulnerable.
