Vigilance is Required

And on another subject important to seniors and everyone else who has a credit card: theft.



Seniors: Vigilance is Required


A week ago I received an email from a company that sells me services. The email informed me that my credit card denied payment for the services. I was asked to open the attachment and complete the form, a request for my credit card information, so that I would not lose the services.


The email used the logo and colors associated with the company named. I reread the email and realized that there were some grammatical errors, checked the URL address, it did not mention the name of the company. Then I googled the company, found a phone number, and called. There is not a problem with my payment record!


My point, we all must continue our vigilance and protect our financial information, no matter how “real” the request appears.
