springhill group home loans scam prevention tips

For the twelfth successive year, identity theft topped the consumer complaint database of the Federal Trade Commission with the largest number of complaints, perhaps owing to the rampant use (and misuse) of online services such as social networking and e-commerce websites.

From the 1.8 million complaints the FTC got in 2011, almost 300,000 are about identity theft. The information of FTC has included complaints filed to them or from other states and federal consumer protection groups.

Most of the complaints of identity theft are coming from consumers saying that their personal details are used in government documents without their knowledge, with scammers aiming to collect benefits. Last year, government-related identity theft was 27% of the total complaints in that category, increasing by 11% since 2009. Accounting for the 14% of identity theft complaints is credit card fraud, with the rest consisting of complaints of bank, utilities and phone fraud.

This kind of stuff is the one that should be given importance. You will be helping a lot for sure. You had a great topic there and it is very timely because I was about to buy a house and it is a good thing I decided to make a few research first before doing so.

These guys are really smart; they are outsmarting every scan prevention we are coming up with. No matter how guarded you are, no matter how aware and how much you use common sense Ėas they always say to use it- these scammers are just too good. They really know what they are doing and I guess criminal minds are just really amazing; they just use it in a wrong way.

Avoid clicking pop-ups and unsolicited emails. Also do not trust sites that seem unreliable. These are usually how internet frauds work.
