Protect Yourself From Gift Card Scams

Protect Yourself From Gift Card Scams

Don’t Fall Victim to a Scam!
Fraudsters are constantly looking for ways to swindle you out of your hard-earned money. Don’t fall victim to a scam.          
Is someone on the phone telling you to pay them with a gift card to:
  • Pay an IRS debt
  • Keep your Social Security benefits
  • Keep your utilities on (electricity, water or heat)
  • Pay for tech support
  • Pay for a family member in trouble
  • Pay a member of the military needing money
  • Pay bail or ransom
  • Avoid arrest or deportation
If you answered yes to any of these, HANG UP! It’s a scam. Gift cards are for gifts, not paying someone!

Protect Yourself
