Recent Scams Article: Watch Out For Popular Event Phishing Scams

Posted on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 in Recent News

Heads up! The bad guys are now trying to trick you into buying fake event tickets well above face-value. It's happening right now with the World Cup, but can happen with any popular event.

Here's how it works: They get you by offering last-minute ticket deals on a phony website, and then steal your credit card information. Don’t fall for this!

Only purchase tickets from official sources! Don't click on links in event-themed emails, texts, or instant messages. If you are sent a suspicious email, delete the email or follow the reporting procedures put in place by your organization.
