Dear NERA Members,
There is a social media scam, predominately seen in Instagram, which is targeting military service members. This scam has been around for over a year, but has picked up steam over the past few months and more and more people in and out of the military are falling prey to fraudsters.
DO NOT provide your personal banking information through social media.
The fraudsters are targeting military, veterans and their families.
In exchange for their personal banking information, they are promised the ability to make easy money. The victim provides their log in/password information and the fraudster gains the ability to deposit fraudulent funds directly into their account. They immediately pull out their fee, before the institution can identify the credibility of the deposit, and the victim is left responsible for the used funds.
The amounts range from $2K to $20K, growing the debt of the victims in a matter of minutes.
Take a moment and think about offers that seem too good to be true. If you have to question if it is legit, walk away. Many victims thought the most they could lose was the balance in their account – they were wrong.
Remember that there is no such thing as easy money and learn how to protect yourself from social media scams. http://bit.ly/1ELIhxh
