NAOSA Scam Alerts and News

 

Twelve Steps To Prevent Fraud

1) Recognize Swindlers at First Contact - Scammers often pose as public servants, non-profit organizations, or representatives from familiar companies when approaching their targets. Verify who you are speaking with before sending someone money or communicating your personal information, especially if the unexpected request originates from text messages, phone calls or emails.

2) Never Send Money To Strangers - Fraudsters likewise pretend to be people in despair or loved ones who require help. These thieves will create fake websites or phony profiles in social media with intent to deceive honest people into sending them money. Don’t be a victim—never send cash to someone you haven’t personally met.

3) Beware of Caller ID - Crooks often use hi-tech gadgets to send fake phone numbers to caller ID equipment; this means the number that pops up on your cell phone may not be real! Hang up on people who ask you for money or for personal information over the phone, even if you recognize the number—you can always call the person back if you believe the request is legit.
