Cyber Security Awareness

Overpayment and refund scams are a type of fraud in which the perpetrator convinces the victim they overpaid, have paid for something in error, or are due a refund. Their intent is to scam victims into relinquishing computer access or bank account information in order to be refunded either online, over the phone, via text message or via a phone app. 

You can find detailed information on this scam and what to avoid on our Website Document Center - Cyber Awareness Bulletin: Overpayment and Refund Scams article.
