Scam Reminders: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...
When receiving offers via telephone, e-mail or regular US Postal Service that seem suspicious it is best to ignore them, delete them, or throw them away and not to participate.
If anyone initiates contact with you posing as a representative of a business and requests banking, credit card, or other personal information, hang up.
Never give this information out to anyone who initiates a call or other communication with you. Legitimate businesses will not call their customers to ask for this information, they already have it.
You may then call the institution the person claims to represent and report the incident to them.
Remember, if anyone sends you a request for money up front for a service, prize, or award, the contact is most likely a scam. Simply do not respond to these requests.
