Tracking Online Frauds, Scams, and Cybercrimes

Despite popular belief, you don’t have to become an IT expert to avoid online crimes (i.e. phishing, hacking, sweepstake scams, identity theft and others). The key to cybercrime prevention lies in practical tips. Adopting a few good online habits can limit your contact with the wrong type of people and reduce the risk of cyberattacks.

Here are a few safety tips and tricks to follow:

  • Set Secure Passwords

Use unrelated words, numbers, and capitalizations to set secure passwords (e.g. GardenWest25). Also, ensure that your online accounts have a different password. It will prevent all of them from becoming compromised during an attack.

  • Update Your Device

Ensure your all smart devices have updated antivirus software and firewall system.

  • Keep Online Interactions Short and Sweet

Avoid sharing personal information (i.e. contact number, address, and other sensitive details) with strangers/online acquaintances. The same rules apply to social media interactions and those done by business representatives (unless stated otherwise).

  • Safe Browsing

Only visit legal/authorized websites (https ://) for browsing.  Recheck and confirm domains before clicking a new website link.

  • Online Transactions

Ensure that all online transactions occur through safe and trusted sources.

  • Emails & Sweepstake Scams

Don’t open files and emails sent from unknown sources.

Apart from this, regularly back up your data to prevent it from getting stolen/lost in the long run.
