Eight Steps to Protect Yourself from Financial Fraud


1. Be aware. Strangers and even those closest to you could place you at risk.

2. Stay involved in your community.

3. Never conduct or do business on the phone. Tell the solicitor to send something in writing.

4. Destroy all receipts with your credit card number.

5. Sign up for the “Do Not Call” list and take yourself off multiple mailing lists

6. Use direct deposit for benefit checks. Your mailbox could be a target.

7. Never give your credit card, banking, Social Security, Medicare, or other personal information over the phone unless you initiated the call

8. Be skeptical of all unsolicited offers and thoroughly do your research.
