Millennials Have Become the Target for Scammers, Better Business Bureau says.

The Better Business Bureau says Millennials are becoming the target for scammers and their scam tracker is a quick way to find out if someone is trying to scam you.

Reports are rapidly increasing from young adults claiming to be scammed or effected by identity theft. Millennials appeal to scammers because more often there aren’t any negatives on their credit reports. And growing up with the internet, young people are more willing to provide their personal information online.

“Please stay away from anybody online who’s promising you goods or services but needs your personal information cause most likely that is a scam,” said President of the Better Business Bureau, Steve Bernas.

An easy way to find out if something is a scam is the scam tracker that BBB.org offers on their website. The scam tracker provides a list of scams by searching keywords in just moments. The Better Business Bureau can only prevent people from getting scammed. If the scam has already occurred you’re at a lost.

Staying safe on social media is just as important for your personal life as it is for your business. Take heed to these 3 P’s of social media safety!
