As social media has become a more prevalent part of daily life, so have social media scams. Reports to the Federal Trade Commission show that more than one in four who lost money to fraud said it started on social media with an ad, post or message. Here are a few to watch out for.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Receiving incentives like gift cards or checks from people you don't know is a red flag. Stop and think – reach out and research before providing personal or financial information.
Never provide your online banking credentials to another person or company.
Never share a one-time access code with another person or entity. If you receive a one-time access code that you did not request, notify your financial institution.
