As in previous years, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has identified a list of tax scams that are impacting thousands of people. Taxpayers need to be especially vigilant throughout tax season to ensure that their information is not compromised.
You may have heard in the news, online hacks and scams are on the rise, especially those involving phishing. Phishing happens when a thief sends a message that looks or sounds legitimate to try and gain information that can be later used to commit fraud against you.
The fight against fraudsters is becoming even more challenging. ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) are a convenient way to access your money on the go, but they also represent a potential opportunity for your account information to be stolen.
