  2. Don’t fall prey to attractive offers of commission or agree to take any unauthorized money into your account.
  3. Before doing business with any person or company, do your research. When transferring money, use a method that makes the transaction secure. For example, many banks, credit cards and services offer fraud protection.
  4. Monitor transactions, check withdrawals from your bank account and track orders.
  5. If you find any problems, contact the appropriate organizations immediately. Depending on the circumstances, this may include your bank, the service used to perform the transaction, or legal entities.
