If you’re unsure of scams and don’t know what to look out for, please see some tips below:

  1. Be cautious of unsolicited emails or messages. Scammers often use phishing emails or messages to obtain personal information or trick you into clicking on a malicious link.
  2. Verify the identity of the sender. Scammers often impersonate legitimate businesses or organisations, so double-check the sender’s email address or contact information.
  3. Keep your software up-to-date. Software updates often include security patches that can protect you from new threats.
  4. Be wary of too-good-to-be-true offers or deals. Scammers often use these tactics to lure victims into giving them money or personal information.
  5. Research the company or organisation before making a purchase or providing personal information. Check their reviews and reputation online to ensure they are legitimate.
  6. Monitor your accounts regularly. Check your bank and credit card statements regularly for any unauthorized charges or suspicious activity.
  7. Trust your instincts. If something seems suspicious or too good to be true, it probably is. Always err on the side of caution and don’t hesitate to seek help or advice if you’re unsure.
