Watch Out for Scammers During the Holidays
Tuesday, November 19, 10:30 a.m.
 
Join representatives from the Federal Trade Commission and Nevada Consumer Affairs for an important presentation about fraudulent scam prevalent during the holidays.
 
Know how NOT to pay.  If someone asks you to pay with an iTunes or Amazon gift card or tells you to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram. Don’t do it. Scammers ask you to pay in ways that let them get the money fast — and make it nearly impossible for you to get it back. If you’re shopping online, know that credit cards have a lot of fraud protection built in.
 
Spot imposters. Imposters pretend to be someone you trust to convince you to send money or personal information. They might say you qualified for a free government grant, but you must pay a fee to get it. Or they might send phishing emails that seem to be from your bank asking you to “verify” your credit card or checking account number. Don’t buy it.
 
Make sure your money goes to real charities. The holidays are an important time to share with people in need. Unfortunately, sometimes charity scammers try to take advantage of your good will. It’s important to make sure a charity will spend your donation the way you want it to. Check out a charity before you give.  Please sign up at the Front Desk by November 18.
