30 Common Credit Scams and How To Avoid Them

It seems that everything is available now on our devices, from our social connections to our finances. However, it’s vital to be aware of the risks that come alongside the benefits of our modern technologies. Credit scams are notorious for targeting vulnerable adults, but as they continue to grow in their deception and sophistication, it’s easy for all of us to fall victim to them at one time or another.

Due to the clever ways people can mask their identity both online and over the phone, it’s difficult to police fraudulent activity quickly enough to prevent any victims. And when times are hard, anyone can become desperate and look for quick fixes or deals that appear to solve all of their financial troubles quickly. Unfortunately, this is where scammers thrive. Whilst there are groups of people more likely to become a victim of a scam, the truth is we all need to know the risks and signs to look out for.

This essential resource from Upgraded Points explores 30 of the most common credit scams to look out for and offers invaluable information to help us recognize and notice the red flags of potential scam artists. Knowing how to protect yourself and the signs that someone or something is dangerous is the first step to avoiding being scammed, so it’s well worth the read. The guide also explains how to protect yourself online and secure your bank account to avoid being at risk of becoming a target of scams or identity theft.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
