It’s a new year and that means there’s all sorts of new scams on the horizon especially considering this is an election year in the US and tax season being right around the corner. With new technology being introduced in 2016, this will also likely provide another new avenue for scammers to try and take advantage of you.
Keep an eye out this year for individuals claiming to be from political organizations who are raising funds for the election. Never donate to any political campaign that is solicited via a phone call. 9 times out of 10 this is a scam waiting to happen. Also, be wary of data breaches in 2016. The healthcare industry is ripe for another major data breach, so be proactive and consider an identity theft protection plan, to stay one step ahead of the game.
