Fraudsters Take Advantage of High Gas Prices

Scammers use consumers’ financial anxieties to lure them in, and high gas prices are no exception. Specifically, criminals are posting ads on social media promising fuel gift cards if you fill out a form and pay a small fee. By filling out the form, the consumer is providing their personal and financial information to the fraudsters, only to receive nothing in return. Scammers are able to use this information to commit identity fraud or even drain the victim’s bank account.
