The internet is getting more intrusive every day. As recent news reports tell us, hackers and spammers find it easier to gather personal info and use it to invade bank accounts, credit cards and other financial secrets.
Check frequently with your bank and credit card company on the most current ways to prevent thieves from invading your personal info. If you get a phone call or online contact claiming to be from one of them, cut it off quickly. Then call the legitimate number to find out if the message was a scam attempt.
