Updated: 1 day ago

As your Mortgage Broker, I'm here to remind you: Stay vigilant, stay informed! Protect your financial health with these quick tips:



1. Stay Informed: Educate yourself about common types of fraud, including phishing scams, identity theft, and financial fraud.


2. Protect Personal Information: Safeguard your personal and financial information by using strong, unique passwords for online accounts, enabling two-factor authentication whenever possible, and being cautious about sharing sensitive information online or over the phone.



3. Verify Requests: Be skeptical of unsolicited requests for personal or financial information, especially if they come via email, phone calls, or text messages. Verify the legitimacy of any requests by contacting the organization directly through official channels before providing any sensitive information.



4. Monitor Accounts Regularly: Keep a close eye on your bank statements, credit reports, and online accounts for any unusual activity or unauthorized transactions. Report any suspicious activity to your financial institution immediately to prevent further fraud.



5. Stay Vigilant: Remain vigilant and trust your instincts when it comes to potential fraud attempts. If something seems too good to be true or feels suspicious, take the time to investigate further before proceeding.


By following these tips and staying proactive about fraud prevention, you can help protect yourself and your loved ones.
