DON'T FALL FOR HOLIDAY FRAUD
During the holiday season, people are more susceptible to various forms of fraud. The most common form of fraud found in the financial industry is a result of social engineering: this is when a fraudster impersonates their institution to trick people into sharing their account credentials, which are then later used for account takeover. You should always be aware and suspicious of phone calls, emails, texts or any communication you receive from someone you don’t know. Particularly if they want personal information or money.
