1. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

2. Keep personal information private – never give your bank account, social security or credit card numbers to anyone you don’t know.

3. Avoid high pressure sales – Say NO to any offer or deal which is only available right now.

4. Never pay for a prize – If you are offered a prize but have to pay a processing fee or taxes in advance it is likely a scam.

REMEMBER – Scammers are clever and will change their stories often.
