Since March is Fraud Prevention Month, we want to raise awareness to some of the scams, fraud and smishing/phishing reported by Community users. As some of you may have noticed, we recently made a new board available: Scam, Phishing & Fraud Discussion.
We encourage you to share your personal experience and that way we can prevent other consumers from being the victim of such schemes.
If compromised, your information can be used for identity theft, industrial espionage and other criminal activities or simply to disrupt the normal course of business.
In order to avoid these unwanted calls, SMS or invoice charges in the future, we suggest:
Not to respond to or call back unknown numbers unless the caller left them a personalized message.
Never give out your financial information such as credit card numbers.
