Recognizing and Avoiding Scams

During the holiday season, it’s especially important to be vigilant about protecting against scams. Please see the following link for things you can do to avoid them.

Some examples from Apple.

– If you believe that your online ID has been compromised, or if you might have entered your password or other personal info on a scam website, change your online password immediately.

– If you receive a suspicious email that looks like it’s supposed to be from certain companies, please don’t click on any links or open or save attachments.

– In general, never share personal information like credit card numbers, passwords, or banking information, unless you can verify the recipient is who they claim to be.

– Taking a few moments to double-check something that looks or sounds odd is well worth it every time. 

Please let your parents or grandparents know about these precautions and help them stay safe online.

 May God’s protection and watchfulness, including the tips included in this link, help keep us safe this holiday season!
