Avoid Social Media Scams

Notice Red Flags on Your Social Media Account

With the holiday season underway, social media scams are at an all time high. Whether it’s a fraudulent ad, a fake coronavirus-related grant or something else, learn what to look for on social media:

  • Never click on pop-up messages, posts that contain content that seem too good to be true, or links and attachments in unsolicited messages.
     
  • Create a strong password and never share it with anyone.
     
  • Never share your information (personal or financial) online unless you know the website you are using is legitimate, secure, and encrypted.
     
  • If you receive a message about a friend or loved one in trouble, do not send any money. Call your friend or loved one to verify the situation instead.
     
  • If you are a victim of a social media scam, visit ReportFraud.ftc.gov whether they have lost money or not.
