A Visual Guide to Fraud better known as SCAM



In this installment of “Lest We Forget-Historical,” Lillian Caldwell takes the reins as the host, delivering the information for today’s episode in the absence of Betsy Wurzel and Lisa Skinner.

In her recent discussion, Lillian Cauldwell shed light on the holiday season, a time when scammers are on the prowl, attempting to exploit unsuspecting individuals and siphon their hard-earned money.

Lillian’s advice on how to protect yourself during this vulnerable period is invaluable and can be summarized into three key tips:

Tip 1: Pause and Confirm

Lillian emphasizes the importance of not reacting immediately to unsolicited requests or alarming messages. When confronted with a potentially suspicious situation, her advice is simple: take a step back, breathe, and count to 20. In today’s fast-paced digital world, it’s easy to act on impulse, but Lillian cautions against it. Instead, she suggests reaching out to your trusted sources, like your children or the retailer in question, to verify the legitimacy of the request. By taking this measured approach, you can avoid falling prey to your gut instincts.

Tip 2: Question Odd Calls
In the age of technology, receiving unexpected phone calls or messages from seemingly close relatives or friends at unusual hours can be a red flag. Lillian asks you to contemplate why your grandchild might be calling you at 2 a.m. when they should be sound asleep. This simple moment of reflection can save you from falling into a potential scam.

Tip 3: Beware of Gut Reactions
Scammers often prey on your immediate reactions, triggering the fight or flight response within you. Lillian reminds us not to let our instincts dictate our actions when confronted with suspicious requests. Instead, take a step back and assess the situation calmly. This measured response can make all the difference in avoiding a scam.

Lillian also delves into various common tactics employed by scammers during the holiday season. These include fake business emails, texts from unknown individuals, gift card requests, messages claiming your Netflix account is suspended, and even notices regarding car warranties. Her overarching advice is consistent: always verify the legitimacy of such requests before taking any action. Don’t become another statistic in the scammers’ playbook.

To further drive home the message and provide practical insights, Ms. Cauldwell shares stories from individuals who have had personal encounters with scammers. These real-life experiences serve as cautionary tales, underscoring the importance of vigilance during the holiday season.

In conclusion, Lillian Cauldwell’s advice is a timely reminder to remain cautious during the holiday season and to resist the urge to react impulsively when confronted with suspicious messages or requests. By adopting a more measured and inquisitive approach, you can protect yourself from falling victim to scammers and enjoy a safer and more secure holiday season.
