Stopping scammers before they steal from you

It seems you can’t look at the news or social media nowadays without reading about email and phone fraud.

Scammers will pretend to be just about anybody —utility employees, bank employees, even IRS agents — to try to get hold of your money or your personal information.

It’s enough to make you want to block everyone out. That’s unfortunate, because there are some genuine opportunities out there that can help you save. But sometimes it’s hard to separate them from all the scams and swindles.
