Have a Scam-Free New Year

For a hopefully scam-free new year, bear in mind these things:

1. Be skeptic of job offers.

2. Make sure you review free-trial offers. See the hidden charges in it.

3. Do not entertain unwanted and unsolicited calls. Perform a phone number lookup and get the details you need to know about caller. Report the calls to the police and the FTC. Share let others know your experiences with these callers.

4. Never wire money to anyone you do not know.

5. Never give out any personal numbers. Be wary of identity theft and fight it.

6. Make all things clear through written contracts.

7. Three things: be safe, keep your guards up, and always have presence of mind.

The new year brings many opportunities, great and small, real and fake. Be wise to know what is right and best for you and never just dive into every opportunity that comes your way especially if it sounds too good to be true.
