Be Cautious While Providing Personal Information
It happens sometime that people receive a phone call or email asking for personal information. They could claim that they represent a bank, credit card company, insurance company, mobile operator or even Census Bureau.
In case you receive such kind of enquiries, be cautious or you could be a victim of a scam. Their aim could be identity theft or a financial fraud. In any case, it is always better to ask for more information before giving out information.
For example, if you receive a letter or email requesting personal information, it should show the source contact information including phone number and location. Similarly, if someone comes to meet you at your place or office, he should be able to produce their identification like company provided ID card or business card or a badge.
If you receive such phone calls, ask the caller their name, office location and office phone number before you identify yourself.
Finally, while it is important to be cautious while giving out your information, don't be scared that everyone is fake and fraud. There are genuine and legitimate marketers as well who want to make their sales through phone calls or emails.
