Some important general tips to remember are:

  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Never provide your online banking credentials to anyone.
  • Trust your gut feelings – especially when you have a bad feeling about an offer or a company.
  • If you are ever asked to deposit a check or money order, then wire funds it is likely a scam.
  • Use login credentials that are difficult to guess. Avoid using personal information (e.g. name, birthday, etc.) in your user id.
