Happy Data Privacy Day!
It's a good day to change your passwords. Use a long password with a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters. Be sure to use different passwords, not the same one for multiple accounts!
Beware of phone scammers threatening the IRS is suing you!
If you have not received a telephone call yet, you may soon receive one from a scammer, notifying you that the IRS is suing you. These calls can be intimidating and scary, even if you believe you have met all your tax obligations. These calls are usually a robo-call, telling you to call back a particular number.
