How to Stay Cyber Healthy

During this period of high anxiety, we are more vulnerable to hackers and scammers. The fraudsters are taking advantage of our fear and uncertainties.

  • Miracle COVID cures: Robocall that offers free COVID test kit or some type of cure.

  • Stimulus Check Scams:  Scammers pretending to be government officials and asking for bank information.

  • If you did not ask for it, do not respond to it.
  • Avoid clicking unknown links posted on social media.  Use legitimate news sources.
  • Monitor your credit activity online by checking bank and brokerage statements, credit card activities, and credit reports (
