The Internet makes it easier to accomplish many things -- banking, research, travel, and shopping are all at our virtual fingertips.
And just as the Internet makes it easier for legitimate pursuits, it also makes it easier for scammers, con artists, and other online miscreants to carry out their virtual crimes- - impacting our real-life finances, security, and peace of mind.
The internet makes many everyday tasks faster and more convenient, like shopping and banking, but it's important to be safe and responsible online.
Scammers use the internet to try to trick you into sending them money or your personal information.
You will need to contact your credit card company directly to notify them if you are disputing unauthorized charges from scammers on your card or if you suspect your credit card number has been compromised.
