Watch Out for Labor Day Scams

cybersecurity tip of the week

End of summer holidays, back to school and shopping sales attract fraudsters with an increase in online and phishing scams. Scammers use fake promotions or charities, social media prizes, and phony scam emails and texts to try and steal your personal information.

Action Steps: Continue to be vigilant with PVR: Pause, Verify Report.
PVR is three simple steps designed to protect you, your family and friends from the stress and losses from scams.

  1. Pause before you click or respond with any personal or banking info.
  2. Verify any deal at the official location, not links or numbers provided.
  3. Report any suspicious activity to the official site if you think it is a scam!
