Medicare, Amazon, genetic testing scams: Common phrases to know | #socialmedia | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker


The first line of defense when it comes to protecting your money from a scam call is simply to avoid picking up the phone. Don’t do it. If you don’t recognize the call — or you see words on your screen like “No caller ID” — don’t answer.

Don’t even answer if the caller ID says Internal Revenue Service or Amazon. Scammers love to impersonate well-known government agencies and others to trick consumers. 

Too many times, of course, we’re expecting a call, so we rush and pick up before we even look at Caller ID. Or we’re distracted. 

Amy Nofziger, director of victim support for the AARP Fraud Watch Network, told me that one woman shared that the family just sat down to dinner and the phone kept ringing and ringing and so she picked up the phone to put a stop to it.
