Scam Prevention For Millennials | Online Safety Guide To Avoid Phishing Launched

Wealth Building Way has announced the launch of a new guide for millennials to help them avoid financial scams and fraud. The guide outlines common scams targeting millennials and provides expert tips and strategies they can use to protect themselves.

Millennials grew up during one of the biggest technological revolutions in human history and have grown accustomed to using technology in their daily lives. Despite this, more millennials are becoming victims of online fraud and scams than ever before, with the FBI reporting a 157% increase in related complaints from those under 21. In response, Wealth Building Way has launched its new guide to help millennials identify scams and keep their personal information and assets safe.

The guide explains that many common scams specifically target millennials. Online shopping scams typically target millennials because of their comfort level with online shopping and e-commerce sites. Wealth Building Way recommends that millennials visit well-known and reputable online stores and check their bank statements regularly for suspicious activity to protect themselves while shopping online.

According to data published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), young adults are 86% more likely to report losing money to online shopping scams and 330% more likely to fall victim to investment scams. Therefore, millennials should be mindful of the increased risks they face and exercise vigilance and caution in their use of technology, explains Wealth Building Way.

Readers are advised to update their software and security patches to ensure they have the best protection against phishing attacks. Furthermore, they should always use two-factor authentication (2FA) when available as it can neutralize risk when a password is compromised.

In addition to discussing various types of scams, the guide also outlines tips for identifying and avoiding phone scams. It notes that phone scammers often use pressure tactics to create a sense of urgency. As a result, requests for personal information over the phone should always be treated with suspicion. To stay safe, millennials should take the time to verify a caller’s identity before providing sensitive information.
