Scambusters Mailbag – answering your scam questions
Q1 Is there anything you can do to prevent being scammed?
Yes! There are several key tools you should use. Firstly, all key email providers now include a scam filter.
We also recommend using a password manager to manage your passwords and having a couple of email addresses.
One of my favourite tips is to put my first name in plus the website name when I register. So Jamessitename.
Then if I get any communications through, I know where the data has been breached from. Finally, I recommend deleting your data from as many sites as possible, this is where tools like Rightly can help.
