Credability Seminar

Everyone talks about the importance of having a good credit score, but few understand its real value when it comes to making major financial investments. Having a better understanding of how your decisions affect your credit may help improve your overall score and give you perks down the line- like special financing, reduced down payments and smaller monthly payments. That means more savings for you. 

If you're looking to build, rebuild, maintain a strong credit history or simply need a refresh on credit- this seminar is for you.

Topic include:

  • The importance of your credit
  • Understanding your credit report
  • What factors drive credit scores
  • How to fix an error
  • Tips for improving your credit score

When: Tuesday, January 24th, 6:00PM to 7:30PM

Where: Far NE Heights Office

             8000 Palomas Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109

              (one block south of Paseo del Norte)

Scams target Amazon shoppers

If you’re one of the many millions of people who have ordered a few items from Amazon.com for the holiday, be cautious of fake emails. One such scam going around is an email that tells you there is something wrong with your order and it can't be shipped. Scammers are counting on you wanting to fix the issue quickly.

The Amazon shipping scam can easily fool you. First is the email with the subject line: Your Amazon.com order cannot be shipped. The body of the email tells you to click a link to confirm your information.

The landing page looks really good. It could easily fool you. The page wants your full name and address. But worse, it wants your credit card information including your CVV, your three digit security code on the back.

The scammers are so good, the next page is the real Amazon.com. Here are some things to look for:

  • Subject line: Your Amazon.com order cannot be shipped
  • Check the sender's name. Usually it's a company versus Amazon.

Never, never, never click the link that is provided in such an email.

Always go to the website directly. In this case, when you go to Amazon.com and log into your account, click the ORDERS tab. If you aren't prompted to update your billing info, then the email you got is not from Amazon.

If you do get this bogus email, Amazon.com wants to know about it. You can report an issue or verify if the email you received is real.
