Tips on Preventing Internet Crime
 

Here’s a list of ways in which you can prevent becoming a victim of an Internet scheme:
• Don’t assume a company is legitimate based on the appearance of a website.
• Be wary of businesses that operate from P.O. boxes or mail drops.
• Ensure you understand all terms and conditions of any agreement before agreeing to a purchase.
• Be suspicious when payment is requested by money transfer before goods will be delivered.
• Do not reply to e-mails asking for personal banking or credit card information.
• Ignore request to assist in placing large sums of money in overseas bank accounts.
• Contact the actual business that supposedly sent the e-mail to verify if the e-mail is genuine.
• Contact the Better Business Bureau to determine the legitimacy of a company.
• Do not give out your social security number to complete a transaction.
• Do not provide credit card information if requested through unsolicited phone calls or e-mails.
• Promptly reconcile credit card and bank statements and be on the lookout for unauthorized charges.
• Immediately report unauthorized transactions to your bank or credit card company.
• Do not respond to lotteries that charge a fee to take delivery of your prize. Legitimate lotteries do not charge a fee to receive a prize.
• If it sounds too good to be true, may be it is.
