Beware of Online Scams

There are hundreds of new scams everyday. Many of them tempt you with free stuff in order to get sensitive information out of you. The most recent scam is on Facebook. The scammers are offering a chance to win Disneyland tickets if you fill out a form that asks you for your name, phone number, address and other information. After you send in the information the tickets never come, and you are stuck receiving annoying phone calls and e-mails asking you to take a survey.

This scam is directed toward children and teenagers who are anxious to win tickets, iPods or even cash. They do not know any better so lets educate them. Inform your kids about these scams and tell them what to look out for. If it seems too good to be true it probably is.
