Tracy Rezvani: Consumer Protection in Montgomery County
The manager and investigative programs administrator of Montgomery County’s Office of Consumer Protection, Tracy gave us a fast-moving and informative talk about cybersecurity and identity theft. She said that identity thefts are raking in millions of dollars from various tricks played on unsuspecting citizens. In particular, she mentioned email frauds (with links from email messages), and telephone scams. She said to maintain strict control of your social security number, to never click on emails from unknown sources and to avoid downloads of “free” offers and interactive Facebook surveys.
