Beware of Imposter Profiles Online

 By Ryley Smith

We want to remind our customers and followers to always beware and ask questions when interacting online. Whether it is a website or social media account, always investigate who you are actually talking to. Unfortunately, scammers sometimes target unsuspecting users by creating false or imposter profiles to collect information or funds online. 

What you can do to keep your information safe online: 

  1. If you are contacted by a brand, check to ensure if the account is legitimate before interacting with them. Some signs that an account is “fake” is if it is a new account, has few followers, is following more people than they have followers and few posts.
  2. Call or email the brand/company directly if something does not seem right.
  3. If the brand is asking you for personal information such as credit card info to collect a prize, do not provide this information.
