No one wants to think about it, but everyone who uses the internet or phone is at risk of being scammed. People from all backgrounds can be tricked into giving money or personal information to criminals, and if you do, it can be nearly impossible to track them down.


You can help protect yourself by staying informed, and one of the best ways to do that is by following the Federal Trade Commission, a government agency for consumer protection. They keep an up-to-date list of scams, and you can even sign up for email updates. Click below for more information.

In addition, keep these simple tips in mind:

  • If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is

  • If someone emails you from a professional company but the message has a lot of spelling mistakes, it’s probably not legitimate

  • Don’t give your private information to an untrusted person or company

  • Don’t click on links from email addresses you don’t recognize

  • Be suspicious of someone asking you to send money through Western Union or another money transfer service


As a reminder, AHR’s services are free and we will not reach out to you to ask for money under any circumstances. If someone claiming to be from AHR has contacted you about money, please let us know by emailing info@americanhoperesources.com.
