Be Aware of Scams
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says crooks use a wide range of scam tools, including phishing emails and texts, bogus social media posts, impostor schemes, and many more. FTC investigators say scam artists follow the headlines and news reports closely and then they adapt tactics to take advantage of the circumstances.
