Fraud Week: Take care online

Fraud Week: Take care online

Whether it be on social, your internet banking, email, or other online services, no one is immune from scam artists trying to take advantage in any way they can.

This week being Fraud Week 2017, the New Zealand Bankers’ Association says the recent global randsomware attack provides a grim reminder to protect yourself online, says

“The convenience of banking and shopping online means we sometimes forget that fraudsters are always looking for new ways to steal our money. The recent ransomware attacks around the world reminds us we all have a role in keeping ourselves safe online,” says New Zealand Bankers’ Association chief executive Karen Scott-Howman.

“The main things to remember to protect yourself from such attacks are to beware email from people you don’t know, don’t open links or attachments in suspicious email, and keep your computers and devices virus protection automatically updated and backed up.

“Similar advice applies when keeping yourself safe from social media scams. Be alert to romance and fake trader scams when using social media. Scammers try to exploit people’s trust to get money out of them.”

How to avoid being scammed on social media:

- Don’t accept invitations from people you don’t know.
- Don’t share personal information with people you haven’t met.
- Review your privacy and security settings. Take the time to understand exactly what your account publicly reveals about you.
- If your account has been compromised, report it to the social media platform.

Fraud Week runs from 15 to 19 May. The theme this year is “Spot social media scams”.

Exposing homewreckers men and women and cheaters in the Internet Age
These days it's not difficult to spread information online. The rise of the internet as the go to source for on demand information has given the victims of cheaters and homewreckers a way to voice out and warn others of the unfaithful ways of their (former) partner. Dozens of websites, commonly referred to as Cheater Sites, now exist.
The purpose of these sites is to give victims of unfaithful partners and abusive relationships a place to post about the cheating ways of their partners and the person their partner is cheating with. Most cheater sites allow for the submission of anonymous posts that are not moderated or validated in anyway.
Fraudsters.onlines allows for anonymous users to submit unverified claims about their partner and the person (or homewrecker) they believe that their partner is cheating with. Today the site features thousands of user-submitted posts warning the public about homewrecker men, homewrecker women and cheaters (male and female).
