Be suspicious of e-mails that ask for personal information, and be alert to other common scams such as foreign lotteries, requests to transfer funds from overseas bank accounts and work-from-home opportunities.
- Delete any e-mail you don’t trust – even opening a “phishing” e-mail can plant a virus or spyware on your PC.
- Never send confidential information by e-mail. If you think you have been scammed and your confidential information compromised, contact your credit card companies and financial institutions immediately. Report it to the Federal Trade Commission . And contact all three credit reporting bureaus to have alerts placed on your credit reports.
Remember, neither Motion nor any legitimate business will ever send you an e-mail asking for personal information. If you receive an e-mail that you’re suspicious of, don’t respond to it.Go to main navigation
