PUBLIC NOTICE – INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY – ONLINE SCAMS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community

Online Scams You Need To Know:
1 – PHISHING
Phishing scams are based on communication made via email or on social networks. Cyber criminals trick you into clicking malicious links and access a website that looks legit, but it’s actually controlled by them. You might end up giving your login credentials and other personal information.
2 – ROMANCE SCAMS
A romance scam usually takes place on social dating networks. Social networking sites are inevitable apps to look for love as well but you need to be careful because you never know who can you meet.
3 – TRAVEL SCAMS
You receive an email containing an amazing offer for an exceptional and hard to refuse destination that expires in a short period of time. The problem is that some of these offers actually hide some necessary costs until you pay for the initial offer. Others just take your money without sending you anywhere.
4 – FAKE NEWS SCAMS
Misleading resources and content found online is a serious problem that should concern our society. It makes impossible for people to distinguish between what’s real and what is not.
5 – TECH SUPPORT ONLINE SCAMS
These tech “experts” pretend to know everything about your computer, how it got hacked and many other details that help them gain your trust and convince victims into giving their sensitive information. Even worst, they try to convince potential victims to pay for unnecessary technical support services.
6 – SMS SCAMS
Smartphones are essential for communication, online shopping, banking or any other online activities. Be careful about these SMS you receive and don’t click on suspicious links that could redirect to malicious sites trying to steal your valuable data.
7 – MAKE MONEY FAST SCAMS
Cybercriminals lure you into believing you can make money in a fast and easy way on the internet. The fraudulent posting of non-existent jobs for a variety of positions is part of the online criminals’ arsenal. This is quite effective approach especially when someone is in a difficult financial situation.
