Here come the blood suckers trying to take advantage of the global crisis and the season of giving with phishing attacks, fraudulent donation phone calls, false collection websites, and other forms of thievery from the victims of these terrible acts of Mother Nature.
The best advice that can be given is, take precautions:
First, make yourself aware of the internet threats. Listen on the news for discussions of emails circulating that are known to carry phishing attempts, or sites that have been cloned. Read blogs reporting on Cyber News.
Second, do not assume that the person calling you is being honest. Tell them you will call back using a known phone number that you will look for yourself, such as the number on the back of your bank card, or on the company website.
Third, never click on links embedded in text messages or emails.
Be safe out there!
