Protect Your Accounts—Check Out Our New Fraud & Security Center
Americans lost nearly $9 billion to identity theft and fraud in 2022 alone. The general public believes that scams are easy to spot as the fraudsters usually employ giveaway clues such as typos, poor grammar, or shady behavior on the phone. However, scammers are constantly finding new tactics—everything from impersonating official phone numbers, email addresses, and websites of legitimate organizations, to scam texts that appear in the same conversation thread as genuine messages.
