Question 1: Please choose “True” or “False”.
Scams today only come through email and websites. Other methods, like using the postal service or the telephone, don’t reach as large an audience, so those have been abandoned by fraudsters in favour of email and other online scams.
A scam can reach you through any of the ways that we use to communicate with each other: the telephone, through the postal service, via social networking sites, even door-to-door, to name just a few.
Protect Yourself: Be cautious of any phone call, email or other request which you receive that wants you to take an action, particularly if that action involves giving out your confidential personal or financial information. Before you do anything else, always verify the message or request with an independent source. That means you don’t use anything provided by the person, the website or the email, when you check to see if the request is valid.
