Protect yourself

Scam And Fraud Awareness

Stay informed, stay vigilant, and protect what matters most—your financial well-being and personal data.

Common payment scams

  • Phishing Emails: Scammers send deceptive emails that appear to be from legitimate sources, asking recipients to click on links and provide sensitive payment information.
  • Invoice Fraud: Fraudsters send fake invoices, often with altered bank details, tricking individuals or businesses into making payments to the wrong accounts.
  • Online Shopping Scams: Fake online stores lure customers with attractive deals but never deliver the purchased items, leaving victims without their products or refunds.
  • Advance Fee Fraud: Scammers ask for upfront payments or fees with the promise of a larger reward or service, but they never deliver on their promises.
  • Ransomware Attacks: Cybercriminals encrypt victims' files and demand a ransom in cryptocurrency for the decryption key, affecting both individuals and organizations.

How to identify a scam.

  1. Too Good to Be True: If an offer or opportunity seems overly generous or promises unrealistic returns, it's likely a scam.
  2. Urgent and Pressure Tactics: Scammers often create a sense of urgency, pressuring you to make quick decisions without proper research.
  3. Unsolicited Communications: Be cautious of unexpected emails, calls, or messages requesting personal or financial information.
  4. Poor Grammar and Spelling: Scam messages often contain typos, grammatical errors, or poorly designed websites.
  5. Request for Payment or Personal Information: If you're asked to send money or share sensitive data, especially through unsecured channels, it's likely a scam.
