Watch Out for Scams
Authority: Is the message claiming to be from someone official?
Urgency: Are you told you have a limited time to respond?
Emotion: Does the message make you panic, fearful, hopeful or curious?
scarity: Is the message offering something in short supply?
Current Events: Is this message related to current news stories, big events or specific times of year (like tax reporting)?
To check if a message is legitimate:
Go back to something you can trust. Visit the official website, log in to your account, or phone their advertised phone number. Don’t use the links or contact details in the message you have been sent or given over the phone.
Check to see if the official source has already told you what they will never ask you. For example, your bank may have told you that they will never ask for your password.
