Tip of the Week:
Scammers May Target You Through Social Media Accounts. Don't Accept Friend or Connection Requests From Individuals You Don't Know.
Con artists and identity thieves may conduct scams through social media accounts. They may befriend you so that they can get enough information about you to steal your identity. They may even try to access your friend list so that they can attempt to scam your family and friends. To protect yourself from this, always make sure that you know someone before adding them to your social media accounts and make sure any sensitive or identifying information about you is hidden from those not on your friend list.
