- The IRS, Social Security Administration, and other government agencies will not contact you over the telephone.
- Resist pressure to act quickly. Scammers create a sense of urgency to produce fear and lure victims into immediate action.
- A legitimate company or government agency will NEVER ask you to send them cash or gift cards.
- If the caller tells you NOT to tell anyone what you are doing, it is a clear red flag that they are scamming you; and they don’t want anyone to talk you out of sending them the money.
All these scenarios are RED FLAGS. If you think you’ve fallen victim to one, please contact us to discuss. 413.743.0001
Please share these flags with the elderly; they are a highly targeted demographic.
