COM­MON SCAMS

TV & Satellite Week - - Take Five -

Stay alert and pro­tect your­self from los­ing money to scams like these. • A GEN­UINE OR­GAN­I­SA­TION WILL NEVER CON­TACT YOU ASK­ING YOU TO MOVE YOUR MONEY INTO A SAFE AC­COUNT. NOR WILL THEY ASK FOR YOUR PIN OR FULL PASS­WORD. • NEVER AU­TO­MAT­I­CALLY CLICK ON LINKS OR OPEN FILES IN UN­EX­PECTED EMAILS OR TEXTS, AS YOU COULD BE GIV­ING FRAUD­STERS AC­CESS TO YOUR DE­TAILS.

• NEVER GIVE OUT PER­SONAL OR FI­NAN­CIAL DE­TAILS, IN CASE IT’S A SCAM. IN­STEAD OF TRUST­ING THE PER­SON WHO’S ASK­ING, CON­TACT THE COM­PANY DI­RECTLY US­ING A KNOWN EMAIL OR PHONE NUMBER.
