One of Many Black Friday Scams 11-12-2020

In this scam, you may get an email or other message telling you there’s an issue with an item you ordered. But you don’t recognize the item and know you never ordered it. The message may be a phishing email meant to trick you into clicking a suspect link, providing your bank login credentials, or turning over other private information to the criminal.

If you get a message about an item you didn’t order, stop and think. The impostor is trying to throw you off balance, hoping you’ll take the requested action because you want to get to the bottom of the situation. If you’re unsure if a message is legitimate, contact the business through other channels that you find on your own, such as chat or their customer service phone number.

If you do click on a phishing link, take action right away. If you provided login credentials for any site, immediately change your username and password. Pick a unique, hard-to-crack password using at least 12 characters with a mix of letters, numbers and symbols. Or you could create a lengthy passphrase that only you would know. Also change your PIN number if necessary. Finally, report the scam to the authorities, such as any legitimate business the scammers were impersonating, as well as the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
