Phishing is a fairly common scam. To help consumers, Walmart has issued fraud alerts and online privacy tips and posted the information on its website.
Phishing is when a third party sends an email pretending to be a legitimate company in an attempt to gather information from the recipients.
Here are some tips for your viewers:
- Viewers should never give sensitive personal information in response to an email, text message or letter.
- It is important that recipients do not click on any links in the email or respond in any way.
- Consumers should also always make sure their anti-virus software is up to date.
