Guard Your Information
Because of the unusual circumstances around the pandemic crisis, scammers are taking advantage of people in new ways. What would be the first thing to remember to avoid being fleeced by these unscrupulous people? It is simply this: Anytime you are approached on the phone, through an email or any other means—always make sure you know who you are talking to and who they are working for. A good rule of thumb to remember – you will never need to give out any of your personal information when you are talking with a legitimate organization. These days, legitimate organizations know better than to ask for information.
If you are being pressed on the phone for your credit card information or your social security number—HANG UP! Legitimate organizations simply won’t require you to divulge this type of information over the phone. Likewise, if you receive an email or a text where you don’t recognize the sender, be very cautious. Scammers have become really skilled at making their emails and texts appear as if they are from a bank or government institution. But—before you decide to do anything, always check where the message is coming from.
We’d like to point you toward a very informative article that gives you an update on some the scams that are currently out there targeting Massachusetts property owners and how to avoid getting caught up in something that may cost you a serious amount of time and money unnecessarily.
