Every year there is a total of 132 317 Americans who fall victim to fraud or identity theft via phishing. Pay close attention to this important announcement as it could be you!
If you're emailed or texted a link from an unknown source, and you click on a link that takes you to a site similar to this one, it's most likely a phishing scam.
One could define phishing as a false digital message attempting to trick you into giving them your personal information such as your social security number, your address, your occupation, etc.
Fraudsters buy your contact details from 3rd parties. 3rd parties are applications and websites that you have visited and left a digital foot pint on. Your digital footprint allows the operator of the site to see your IP address which has ties with your email.
To protect yourself from digital phishing, try not to visit off brand web sites. Also do not respond to suspicious texts and emails that offer money and ask for your sensitive information. Also use a secure password for your email, and all your accounts for that matter. Report any suspicious emails to your bank immediately.
Stay safe and stay smart. Avoid fraud at all costs. Thank you for your time, have a great day! A message from Westside High School.
