Be careful with who you trust. One of the easiest ways to be compromised is to give away your password. Scammers are excellent at what they call “social engineering”. One of the big tips I have is: if someone is asking for information over the phone, ask to call them back to verify the number. If they have problem doing that, then they are more than likely not legit. This is especially true for credit card and social security numbers. Bottom line: Be careful what you give out.
