I want to take a look at some recent credit card scams that are going around these days and the best ways to avoid them. First off though, I actually want to talk about some good news.
According to the The Nation, there were over 6 people arrested in Thailand that were responsible for credit card scams, fake credit cards, skimming devices and notebook computers. I’m always glad to hear of things like this as that means there are a few less fraudsters out there ripping people off.
There are still though many scams going on out there and here are some more going around. If you are in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area, be warned of this scam that’s happening.
I want to talk about some of the latest credit card scams that are going around out there so that you can avoid them. It really does sadden me that people will do anything to take advantage of others to get money they didn’t earn. If they can put that much effort into scamming, why can’t they get a regular job like most law abiding citizens? Anyway, let’s take a closer look at some of the credit card scams circulating around.
iTunes Emails that are Fake
For those of you who live in Florida (or really anywhere since it deals with emails), be warned of this latest scam going around.
According toFox 4 News(in Florida), scammers are sending out what appears to be convincing receipts from iTunes through email. They show charges that are fake and whatever links are on it, when you click on them they do not take you to any website that has to do with Apple according to the article.
Stay clear of it or delete this email immediately if you receive it. One way to check to see of whether an email is legitimate or not is to check where it was sent from usually at the top of the email (not in the body of the main email). If it says something that says www.apple.net, .org or even something that doesn’t appear to be related to Apple, it is a phishing email (scam) and you should delete it immediately or even forward it to Apple itself to their fraud department.
It is important to save or put money back because of unexpected things that life tends to throw at us. Some people might also want to save money for something they want to buy later on down the road such as a car or other item.
Given our circumstances though it can be really hard to put any kind of money into a savings account especially if you’re living paycheck to paycheck. You might be wondering what is a good amount to put in a savings account and how much money you should put into one each week or whatever frequency might work for you.
A financial guide that I’ve used in the past called Financial Peace University has said that $1,000 is a good amount to have in a savings account as it tends to cover a large amount of sudden emergencies that might come up such as vehicle troubles, maintenance issues for the house or sudden medical expenses. Now you don’t have to stop saving once you reach a thousand dollars, but that is good amount that you should always try to have in your savings account or at least build back up to.
