Protect yourself this holiday season
Cybercriminals are striving to illegally access your financial data and identity through the Internet, local networks, and your digital devices. As financial activity continues moving to online platforms and increases during the holidays, this crime is expected to peak. The good news is there are several ways to guard yourself against cyber thieves and avoid the peril this holiday season.
Be aware of deceptive emails, pop-ups, and other online scams.
Online criminals will attempt to acquire your personal information by luring you to a website that looks legitimate, but is actually a fake site. If you receive any emails from an unfamiliar source, or any suspicious pop-ups, do not click on the links or open the attachment.
New online attacks are so advanced that they are capable of redirecting you to a fake website, even if you didn't click on anything. If a web page asks for you to provide sensitive information that it has never asked you to provide before, do not type anything and close the page immediately. Financial institutions and online service providers do not ask you to enter information such as your credit card number, full Social Security number, or PIN number on the login page or any subsequent pages.
Preventing tech scams against the elderly
An increasingly more common form of elder fraud is the tech-support scam. This is where criminals trick victims into giving remote access to their computers while pretending to provide technical support. Arming yourself with information to combat scams is critical.
