WYDaily has collaborated with AARP to raise awareness about scams people need to watch out for.
A scam will be featured every Wednesday, so be sure to always check WYDaily.com and be in the know.
Here’s this week’s edition:
In the world of successful scams, it turns out fear sells.
While some scams promise riches, romance or a new career, most scams use fear to steal your money.
Scammers seek to create a sense of anxiety, anger, or embarrassment in hopes we will make decisions in an emotional, vs. logical, state.
If you get a scary call, an email, or a popup message on your computer, hit pause. Give yourself a minute to think logically before taking an action that could result in loss of money or personal information.
