Unfortunately, the topic of this piece is something few people like to hear about or will admit falling prey to: SCAMS. A scam is a dishonest scheme, usually for making a quick profit. Nowadays, scams tend to involve communicating electronically, whether through email, online advertisements, or good old phone calls, and trying to steal something important (bank account info, social security numbers) to exploit a person for the other’s gain.


Sadly, no population is exempt from scams. Some populations, such as the elderly, disabled, and even Veterans, are specifically targeted because they seem more vulnerable. It is important to note that if someone contacts you, whether via telephone, email, or online advertisements, and they ask for any personal information, quickly disengage and enlist assistance from someone who has your best interests at heart, such as a trusted family member, and ask them to help you navigate finding reputable representation that will not take advantage of you. Click here for tips on avoiding internet scams.
