A Scam to Watch For

Last Update: December 09, 2018

Hi all,

Just thought I'd post a link to this AARP article about how scammers are getting bolder. This one deals with scammers offering to design websites for very little money and then convincing the unsuspecting to spend more and more with promises of great riches.

So glad we have such a secure community. Here's the link: Why a Cheap Website Design Could End Up Costing Thousands.

Hi Cheryl,
Thanks for the tip. It is true that the scammers, con artists and just plain crooks are getting bolder and will try anything to "get you".

It pays to be cautious even with well-known websites as they can design a site to look like the real thing.

Recently we had a genuine looking website from Bank of America wanting some information because they "lost" it. The tip-off was, we don't even have an account with BOA.

So be careful folks.

That happened to me, too, except it was Wells Fargo and I don't have a Wells Fargo, account. Just can't be too careful!

Scammers up on their game better than legit people I must say, which is unfortunate.
