Don't Fill in the Blanks for Scammers

Never give out personal or financial information, including your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, date of birth, or passwords.

Scammers have ways to trick you into filling in the blanks of information they already have about you.

The more complete the information they have about you, the easier it is for them to steal your identity, access your accounts, and scam your family and friends.
