City of Saratoga Neighborhood Watch

Tips & Trends 

Phishing scams are commonly used by criminals to obtain personal information for the purpose of committing fraud. Protect yourself from fraud by following these tips:

  • Phishing emails and texts may look like they’re from a company or person that you know and trust. Check for minor abnormalities, like sender email or typos, to spot phishing attacks.
  • If a company or person that you trust has sent you an unexpected request, confirm the request by phone.
  • Protect your accounts by using multifactor authentication, which requires two or more credentials to log into your account.
  • If you get a phishing email or text, do not click on any links, reply, or open attachments.
  • Report phishing scams to the Federal Trade Commission by forwarding messages by email to or by text to SPAM (7726).
