While we have made it through tax season and the stress of those scammers calling us to tell us we were in trouble as we owed the IRS mega bucks, the scammers are still out there. The key word is vigilance. Watch your credit card statements, your bank statements and any mail that tries to snare you in with a deal that is just too good be true.
Also, now that summer is here, beware of people going from door to door to solicit either signatures or money. They may not be all they are cracked up to be.
Places where you can go to check on the legitimacy of an issue are either snopes.com or scamnot.org.
