We get phone calls, emails and texts daily at our house of people trying to get our information or to scam us. Everything from someone in England that died and left us 8.5 million dollars to call this number right away or the IRS will be taking you to court.
It has gotten worse since the Internet I feel. Now there is so much information that people can find out about other people on Social Media accounts and other websites.
Even with Credit Cards you can get scammed. In our town people have hooked up Skimmers on Gas Pump’s Credit Card Machine. I have heard of Scanners that someone can walk by you can scan your card. This is why I have my Cards in Protective Cases to try to help block that from happening.
We have a friend of ours that was shopping on the East Coast at a name brand store and the person who waited on her took her information from her ID and Credit Card and then went and took out other Credit Cards in her name. They eventually caught the lady who did it but our friend had to fly out to the East coast for the court case and testify. She lost not only time from her life, stress of the whole deal but also traveling costs.
It can be a nightmare for anyone who gets scammed. I know every time someone has used our credit card number fraudulent it bugs me a ton. We want our boys to be safe as they can in the future.
As always, I am not giving you any Financial Advice and you should seek advice from your Professional Advisors to see what is best for your situation. See my Disclaimer at MillsWay.com. This is for entertainment only.
With our Credit Cards our companies we have accounts with have been really good for investigating fraudulent charges. I once had someone send me a Money Order for a purchase, it seemed fake so I took it to our bank and they said it was. They took down the information and then did the investigation. We never lost any money any time so far that we have been scammed. Listen to the whole Podcast show for all the details.
