Be Scam Safe in 2020 with Tips from Datcp

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — 2020 is here and the state consumer protection division wants you to make being scam smart part of your resolutions.. `Director Lara Sutherlin says that while the exact ways that scams play out have changed, the goals of a crook have not. “They want your money, they want your personal information, and they want access to your computer system so they can download malware, or extract personal information from your computer.” She says you should be wary of people claiming to be a utility and demanding immediate payment, out of the blue emails or calls that you’ve won a prize or strong-arm tactics like claiming you’re wanted for a warrant and need to pay over the phone.`
