Seven behaviors that make you vulnerable to fraud

AARP Magazine regularly publishes extremely useful content about scams conducted by phone and email. Recently, AARP released a relevant article about what makes us vulnerable to fraudsters. Here are those seven personality traits:
  1. You respect authority.
  2. You like to please people.
  3. You are cocky.
  4. You slipped up once.
  5. You're friendly.
  6. You are under stress.
  7. You're lonely.
In a nutshell, we are vulnerable because we are human. The best way to avoid becoming victim to fraud is not to believe everything you hear or see, and to put a stop to the bad habit of clicking links and opening attachments without first thinking and validating the source.
