How do I make sure I am not being scammed?
What You Can Do to Avoid a ScamBlock unwanted calls and text messages. Dont give your personal or financial information in response to a request that you didnt expect. Resist the pressure to act immediately. Know how scammers tell you to pay. Stop and talk to someone you trust.
What do you do if you think you have been scammed?
Contact your bank immediately so they can protect your account. After youve told your bank about the scam, keep an eye on your bank statements and look out for any unusual transactions. Also check your credit score to see if there are applications for credit you dont recognise.
How do you stop text messages from being scammed?
On an Android phone, you can disable all potential spam messages from the Messages app. Tap the three-dot icon in the upper right of the app and select Settings > Spam protection and turn on the Enable spam protection switch. Your phone will now alert you if an incoming message is suspected of being spam.
