In the wake of the Equifax breach, criminals will use this for new scams. Telephone calls claiming to help you fix your credit problems, emails stating you accounts will be closed from the breach, and so on. The only way to protect yourself and others from falling for these fraudulent scams is to be aware of them, be skeptical and understand how legitimate banks and government agencies work.
Don’t trust email, always question phone calls and never, ever give out any account information over the phone. Hang up and call the banks directly, don’t click on email links and if you are unsure stop and ask, email me and I can help. 99% of the time it will be fake.
It’s better to hesitate and ask, than click and be wrong.
Be aware, be safe.
