Fraudsters can strike anyone, anywhere, any time: online, by mail, by phone and even in person. Fraudsters are also sly, and their victims may be very young, very old and anywhere in between. If you or a member of your family think they have been the target of fraud, report it to us, even if you did not give them any money.

REMEMBER that financial institutions and government agencies will not contact you by text message or email.
