Financial scams can happen to anyone. However, scammers often single out older and retired individuals due to their regular income and potentially substantial savings. In this article, we’ll explore some common scams and provide tips on how to protect yourself and your savings from these schemes.
Phishing scams are emails or text messages designed to trick you into revealing personal information, such as passwords, Social Security numbers, or credit card details. Scammers will often pose as trusted institutions, like banks or government agencies in order to win your trust.
Tech support scams start when scammers call you, claiming to be from a tech company, and implying that there’s a problem with your computer. They will often ask you to install software so they can remotely access your computer. If they obtain access, they can steal your personal information or install malware.
Impersonation scams rely on manipulating individuals into revealing confidential information or making payments. Scammers may impersonate family members, friends, law enforcement officers, or government employees.
Investment scams promise a potentially lucrative deal with high returns and little to no risk. These types of scams prey on individuals’ desire to grow their savings.
In lottery or prize scams, scammers will claim you’ve won a prize, but before you can be rewarded, they require a fee or personal information.
In charity scams, scammers will often pose as a real charity, or set up fake charities in the name of popular causes, such as cancer research or disaster relief. These scams often pop up before the holidays as well as after newsworthy natural disasters and emergencies.
