Simple Prevention Tips – Fraud Scams

 

The list of prevention methods to avoid becoming the victim of a fraudulent scam is very short. In fact, there are few things we really need to do to help protect ourselves against these types of criminals. Simply familiarize yourself with the various types of scams and then avoid information sharing with people we do not know.

 

Another thing to keep in mind is that we must never engage in conversation with someone who contacts us by email or a pop-up on your computer. If you receive any email that asks you to do anything for anything, do not respond.

 

A simple rule to follow is if you receive a telephone call, email, or text message from someone that you do not know and they ask you for anything, immediately discontinue the conversation.

 

If you see suspicious person(s) or activity in your neighborhood or business, call Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044 or 911 immediately. It is a good idea to keep the Sheriff’s Station phone number stored in your cell phone for quick reference.
