When it Comes to Cyber Fraud,
PureTalk has Your Back.

70% of Americans
over 65 become a victim of fraud.

Don’t be one of them.

Your first line of defense against cyber fraud is knowledge. Here are some important tips from PureTalk to help you avoid becoming an online scammers next victim:
  • Make sure your security software is updated regularly on all your devices.
  • Check domain names closely. Scammers may use website names that look legitimate but differ slightly from the original site.
  • Never wire money to someone you have never met. Even if they seem like a nice person online.
  • Remember that government agencies like the IRS do not initiate contact with you through social media, email, or text.
  • Avoid posting personal and identifying information on social media, even if your privacy settings are private.
  • Do not click on suspicious links or attachments in emails or text messages.
  • If you are not sure if an online message is from a business such as your bank, call their official number or stop by in person for verification.
  • Never provide information such as your back account or social security number over the phone, email, or text.
