National Debt Relief recently shared in an article published April 4, 2015 how most consumers are falling into the trap of financial scams. The article titled “Watch Out For These Financial Scams” hopes to educate consumers about this financially devastating problem. The idea is to identify the most common scams and look for ways to avoid them.
The article starts off by highlighting the fact that there is not one consumer who wants to get scammed with their finances but unfortunately, it is almost impossible to avoid financial scam these days. It goes on to point out that there are recent high-profile data breaches in well-known establishments that has exposed a lot of consumer’s financial details.
The article explains that the two most common financial scams falls under two main categories which would be mortgage scams and the more popular credit card scams. This is not to say that the other money scams does not have a huge effect on a consumer’s finances but thieves seems to favor mortgage accounts and credit card card details.
Credit card scammers usually use spyware on computers to obtain a person’s card information. These thieves are also adept in tricking people into revealing their security code. This would be the numbers at the back of the credit card which should only be known to the consumer. Once scrupulous individuals gets a hold of these and other data, they can do major damage on a consumer’s finances.
The article goes on to share some tips to help prevent thieves in getting their hands on sensitive card data. One of which is that consumers should never share their PIN of personal identity number with just anyone. This will give thieves the easiest access to their finances and could even take money out of the account.
But this is not just through word of mouth because consumers must be aware of where they put input their card details online. It can be when they are shopping online or logging into their bank accounts using unsecured connections. These instances gives hackers the opportunity to grab those details and use them for their own advantage.
