Treat Your Personal Information Like Cash

Never share your personal information with just anyone.

Your Social Security number, credit card numbers, and bank account numbers can be used to steal your money or open new accounts in your name. So every time you are asked for your personal information - whether in a webform, an email, a text, or a phone message - think about whether you can really trust the request. In an effort to steal your information, scammers will do everything they can to appear trustworthy.
