  1. Security Practices to Help You Avoid Identity Theft
  • Verify use of a secure session (https:// and not http://) when entering passwords on the internet.
  • Pay attention to the URL (web address) that you are visiting! Fraudulent websites often create misleading web address like to trick users of a into believing they are visiting a legitimate site where they have an account when they are really at a password harvesting spoof of the legitimate website. This is a very common trick that scammers use to fool users into divulging passwords to fake copies of real websites!
  • No website or service will ever “lose” a user’s login information and request that the user provide it to the website or company. Requests involving this sort of statement are always a scam 100% of the time and usually involve some sort of coercive statement such as threatening the loss of funds if login credentials are not supplied in time.
  • Avoid saving passwords to any computer.
  • Always use Log Out buttons when you are finished to end your secure sessions. This helps prevent session hijacking attacks where hackers keep sessions open when you think they have been closed.
  • Never leave computers unattended when using online services.
  • Never access sensitive computer systems or websites from public computers at a hotel, library, coffee shop or when using your own devices over any public wireless access point.
  • Offers for employment as a mystery shopper, payment processor, etc. where you are required to use your personal account for someone else’s business purposes are never legitimate.
