Episode Four - Safeguarding Against Financial Scams

While financial scams and fraud are common, there are a few simple things you can do to protect yourself. In this episode of Speaking of Money with the FCE Group, you will learn:

  • A real life situation where a client's accounts were hacked, simply because he clicked a link he received over email. Soon after calling the phone number in the link, and providing some personal information to the person he spoke with, he realized that his accounts had been hacked.

  • Some common types of financial scams and how to identify them.

  • Never give confidential personal information over the phone to someone you don't know unless you initiated the call.

  • Additional steps you can take to protect your identity and guard against fraud.
