- Never give out your personal and confidential information over the phone.
- Protect your online accounts (try using two-factor authentication) and banking information.
- Do not use the same passwords over and over again.
- Don’t be afraid to say no to someone or hang up the phone.
- Do your research – if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
