What are online scams?
Online scams are a real pain for anyone. They can cost you money, time, and trust. Avtib has you covered with our suite of anti-scam tools.
Here are some tips to help avoid online scams:
1. Do your research: Before anything else, do your research. Know what the scam is before you get involved. Check out the company or product before investing any money.
2. Be sceptical: Always be sceptical when it comes to online deals. If something seems too good to be true, it likely is. Is the company legitimate? Are they asking for too much information?
3. Use caution: Don’t send any money to someone you don’t know or trust. Never share personal information – like your bank account numbers – with someone you’ve only met online.
4. Report scams: If you think you’ve been scammed, don’t hesitate to report it! Scams hurt everyone, so reporting them helps keep others safe as well as bring those responsible to justice.

What to do if you get scammed
If you’ve ever been a victim of an online scam, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), scams are the number one consumer complaints received by the agency.
Here are three steps you can take to help protect yourself from becoming a scam victim:
1. Know the warning signs. There are several common warning signs that suggest you may be involved in an online scam: you receive an unsolicited email or phone call asking for money; you receive an unexpected gift or package; your credit card is charged without your permission; or you are asked to wire money overseas. If you suspect that you’re being scammed, don’t hesitate to contact your financial institution or law enforcement officials.
2. Don’t send money without verifying information. Before sending any money, always verify the information provided by the person requesting it, including their name, address and phone number. Also, be suspicious if someone requests personal information such as your Social Security number or bank account numbers over email. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
3. Be aware of phishing schemes. Phishing schemes involve fraudulent emails that look like they come from well-known companies or organizations (like your bank). These emails ask recipients to provide personal information such as their login credentials or account numbers in order to access their accounts online. Be especially careful about emails that request sensitive financial information; if it seems suspicious, don’t give out
