Telephone and e-mail “scams” are becoming widespread; here are 5 tips for avoiding becoming a victim.=

  1. Always remember that a phone call, text or e-mail may not be genuine, even though it seems to be – the con-merchants are good at that sort of thing.
  2. Never disclose any security details or personal information.
  3. Listen to and trust your instincts.
  4. Never be rushed or pressurised into making a decision.
  5. Stay in control; if you’re not happy about the situation, terminate.
