Again, the criminals are using the same templates as the actual websites, so concerned customers instinctively want to click through and correct these errors. However, it is all a ruse to access personal information using an impressive, but du- plicated, website setup. Conversely, if you ever sell anything on- line that is not within your own shopping cart or ordering system, beware of any contacts that are ready to purchase with "one important detail." Essentially, the buyer tells you, the seller, that their client has already given them a money order or cashier's check for a total more than the amount you are asking. You will be asked to cash the check or money order, and re- fund them the balance. This is a red flag for fraudulent activity. Be safe and be sure to identify anyone offering to buy with- out hesitation. IN SUMMARY To bring this criminal chaos article to an end, follow the simple rule of thumb that any correspondence in your email or so- cial media inboxes can easily be faked, re- gardless of their professional and authen- tic aesthetics. Perform online banking, purchasing and other tasks by logging into the website from a secure brows- er––never from a link sent in an email. It is also recommended to keep passwords and login information in a simple text file on your computer rather than saving them in your browser. One simple visit to the wrong website and malware has now captured that information for use in the near future. And, if you get a letter from a wealthy Nigerian in need, keep in mind the 419 scam has been around for years. You'd probably know if you have a rich uncle living there.
