There are many steps you can take to protect yourself against financial fraud. Familiarize yourself with them and make sure your family members know them, too.

  • Know how to set strong personal identification numbers (PINs) and passwords, and use them wisely.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you put on social networking sites.
  • If you are approached by a fraudster or become a victim of fraud, contact the appropriate authorities right away.

At the end of the module, you will find an Action plan. This is a tool that you can use to track your progress in protecting yourself from financial fraud in the future. Use the action plan as a roadmap for financial action!
