14 Tips to Protect Yourself From Fraud

 Knowing how to protect yourself from fraud is important. Fraudster uses clever schemes to defraud millions of people every year. They often combine new technology with old tricks to get people to send money or give out personal information.

So far the hackers have used emails to launch this type of attack, but with the widespread use of social media networks and smartphones with internet access, the types of attacking are multiplying.  

Here are some practical tips to help you stay a step ahead

1. Spot imposters. Scammers often pretend to be someone you trust, like a government official, a family member, a charity, or a company you do business with. Don't send money or give out personal information in response to an unexpected request — whether it comes as a text, a phone call, or an email.

2. Do online searches. Type a company or product name into your favorite search engine with words like "review," "complaint" or "scam." Or search for a phrase that describes your situation. " You can even search for phone numbers to see if other people have reported them as scams.

3. Don't believe your caller ID. Technology makes it easy for scammers to fake caller ID information, so the name and number you see aren't always real. If someone calls asking for money or personal information, hang up. If you think the caller might be telling the truth, call back to a number you know is genuine.

4. Don't pay upfront for a promise. Someone might ask you to pay in advance for things like debt relief, credit and loan offers, mortgage assistance, or a job. They might even say you've won a prize, but first you have to pay taxes or fees. If you do, they will probably take the money and disappear.

5. Consider how you pay. Credit cards have significant fraud protection built in, but some payment methods don't. Wiring money through services like Western Union or MoneyGram is risky because it's nearly impossible to get your money back. Government offices and honest companies won't require you to use these payment methods.

6. Don't send money to someone you  don't know.  That includes an online  merchant you've never heard of — or an online  love interest who asks for money or favors. It's best to do business with sites you know and  trust. If you buy items through an online auction,  consider a payment option that provides  protection, like a credit card. Don't send cash or  use a wire transfer service.

7. Talk to someone. Before you give up your money or personal information, talk to someone you trust. Con artists want you to make decisions in a hurry. They might even threaten you. Slow down, check out the story, do an online search, consult an expert — or just tell a friend.

8. Hang up on robocalls. If you answer the phone and hear a recorded sales pitch, hang up. These calls are illegal, and often the products are bogus. Don't press 1 to speak to a person or to be taken off the list. That could lead to more calls.

9. Be skeptical about free trial offers. Some companies use free trials to sign you up for products and bill you every month until you cancel. Before you agree to a free trial, research the company and read the cancellation policy. And always review your monthly statements for charges you don't recognize.

10. Don't deposit a check and wire money back. By law, banks must make funds from deposited checks available within days, but uncovering a fake check can take weeks. If a check you deposit turns out to be a fake, you're responsible for repaying the bank.

11. Check the Source of Information From Incoming Mail. Your bank will never ask you to send your passwords or personal information by mail. Never respond to these questions, and if you have the slightest doubt, call your bank directly for clarification.

12. Never Go to Your Bank's Website by Clicking on Links Included in Emails. Do not click on hyperlinks or links attached in the email, as it might direct you to a fraudulent website.
Type in the URL directly into your browser or use bookmarks / favorites if you want to go faster.

13. Periodically Check Your Accounts.  It never hurts to check your bank accounts periodically to be aware of any irregularities in your online transactions. 

14. Enhance the Security of Your Computer. Common sense and good judgement are as vital as keeping your computer protected with a good antivirus to block this type of attack.
In addition, you should always have the most recent update on your operating system and web browsers.

There are always new online and phone scams, so stay informed and be cautious to avoid fraud.
If you spot a scam, report it to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Your reports help the EFCC and other law enforcement investigate scams and bring scammer to justice.

How To Remove Password from a PDF File

Note: This trick will only work if the PDF doesn't have any printing restrictions. However, many PDF files are just password-protected to provide encryption and can be printed normally once you provide the password.

How To Remove Password from a PDF File

  • Open the PDF document using your web browser and provide the password it requires. Click the "Print" button on the PDF toolbar while viewing the password-protected document.
  • Click the "Change" button under Destination and select "Save as PDF". Click the "Save" button and you'll be prompted to provide a name and location for your new PDF. Your new PDF will contain the same content as the original PDF, but won't be password-protected.
This method will work in Chrome on any operating system, but you can perform the same trick with other applications and PDF printers. For example, Windows 10 includes a PDF printer, which means you can do this in Microsoft Edge or any other PDF viewer on Windows.

For example, open a protected PDF document in Microsoft Edge and provide the password to view it. Click the "Print" button on the PDF viewer toolbar after you have.

Select the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer and click "Print". You'll be prompted to choose a name and location for your new PDF file.

You can do this trick in any PDF viewer on Windows 10. Just select the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer. On older versions of Windows, you'll need to install a third-party PDF printer before you can perform this trick (or just use Chrome).

This method also works in other operating systems. For example, on a Mac, you can do this with Preview, or any other PDF viewer and the built-in PDF printing feature.

First, open the protected document in Preview and provide the password it requires. Click File > Print to open the print dialog.

Click the "PDF" menu button at the bottom of the print dialog and select "Save as PDF". Enter a file name and location for your new PDF file when prompted. The new PDF file will have the same contents as the original, but no password.

The Official Method Using Adobe Acrobat Pro

You can also do this the official way with Adobe Acrobat Pro, a paid application. This is a different program from the free Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF viewer that most people have. Adobe offers a week-long free trial of Acrobat Pro. Adobe Acrobat Pro will work even if the PDF has printing restrictions, and can't be printed in other applications using the above trick.

Open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Pro and provide its password to view it. Click the lock icon at the left side of the window and click "Permission Details". You can also click File > Properties and click the "Security" tab.

Click the "Security Method" box, select "No Security", and click "OK" to remove the password.

Click File > Save to save your changes. You can also just close the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC window and you'll be prompted to save your changes. Once you have, the password will be removed from the original PDF file.

How to Solve ”Google Play authentication is required” Issue on Android Smartphone

Any Android phone is almost useless without Google Services and when you are kept from using these services because of random errors, it gets quite frustrating. The 'Google Play authentication is required' pops up randomly for some users for no apparent reason when you are trying to install an app from Google Play Store. There is no official word from Google about it so far. Here are few things that might come in handy if you encounter this error:
  • Remove your Google Account: Yep, you read that right. Most of the time the problem could be a simple sign-in which is caused by any recent updates to the Google Play Store app (it automatically get updated in the background). So, simply removing and re-adding your Google Account to from/to your phone has a good chance of fixing the issue.
Go to Settings> Account> Google and tap the account which is causing the error. Then tap on the menu from top right corner and select 'Remove Account' and confirm to remove the account.

To re-add your account, go to Setting > Account and select the 'Add account' from the bottom and proceed with the steps.
  • Clear data from the Google Play Store: This is also one of the most effective solutions. This is almost logically similar to the above – instead of resetting your account, you are going to reset your Google Play Store.
To clear Google Play Store data, go to Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Storage and then tap on 'CLEAR DATA'. This is clear all the cached/stored data of the Google Play Store App. After doing this, try using the Google Play Store app by opening it normally.
  • Uninstall Google Play Store updates: If just clearing the data doesn't work for you, do not worry, we have one more option. We can try uninstalling any updates to the Google Play Store.
To do this, go to Settings > Apps > Google Play Store and tap on 'UNINSTALL UPDATES'. Doing this will reset you Google Play Store app to revert back to factory version which was there when you purchased your device.

Now, you have to install the latest version of the Google Play Store.
Copy the downloaded APK file to your phone.

Make sure Settings> Security> Unknown Sources is enabled.

Open the favorite file manager of your choice and navigate to the folder where you placed the downloaded file.

Tap on to install.

Now you have the latest version of Google Play Store. Simply open the app, try using it and see if the problem is gone.

Alternate Tips:

Please note that these are not 'fixes', rather, a temporary workaround for the issue:

Fresh sync: Go to Setting> Accounts> Google and select the account which is causing the issue. Tap on the menu icon on the top right corner and select 'Sync now'.

Using browser: Go to Google Play Store website from any browser and sign in with your Google Account. Search for the app you want and hit 'Install' from there. If everything is fine, usually, the app will be automatically downloaded/installed on your phone.

Reset Your Phone:

If none of the above work, then there is only one thing left to do. Completely resetting your phone to factory settings. It hardly ever comes to this point and the subject is out of the scope of this article. But unfortunately, if it does comes to this point, don't hesitate to drop a comment below. We will do what we can to get it resolved!

How To Retrieve All Your Recently Typed/Entered Commands in Command Prompt (CMD).

How to View Your Command History In Command Prompt (CMD)

  • Up Arrow: Recall the previous command you typed. Press the key repeatedly to walk through your command history.
  • Down Arrow: Recall the next command you typed. Press the key repeatedly to walk through your command history.
  • Page Up: Recall the first command you ran in the current Command Prompt session.
  • Page Down: Recall the most recent command you ran in the current Command Prompt session.
  • Esc: Clear the command line.
  • Use these F keys to interact with your command history:
  • F7: View your command history as an overlay. Use the up and down arrow keys to select a command and run it. Press Esc to close the overlay without running a command.
  • F8: Search your command history for a command matching the text on the current command line. So, if you wanted to search for a command that began with "p", you'd type "p" on the command line and then repeatedly tap F8 to cycle through commands in your history that begin with "p".
  • F9: Recall a command from your command history by specifying its number in the history buffer. These numbers are display in the F7 overlay window, and begin at 0. So, if you wanted to quickly re-run the first command you ran in the current session, you'd press "F9", type "0", and press "Enter". The command would appear filled in at the prompt and you could press "Enter" once again to run it.
  • To print a list of your command history in the terminal, run the following command:doskey /history

How to Copy Your Previous Command In Command Prompt (CMD)

  • F1: Copy one character at a time from the the previous command you typed. Press the F1 key repeatedly to type the command you previously typed, character by character.
  • F2: Copy part of the command you previously typed. You'll be prompted to enter a character. The system will search forward in the previous command you typed and automatically copy the text up to, but not including, that character. For example, if the last command you ran was "ping", you could press "F2", type "o", press "Enter", and "ping g" would appear at the prompt.
  • F3: Copy part of the command you previously typed. The system will start from the current character position and automatically copy the remainder of the text from that position on the previous line. For example, let's say the last command you typed was "ping -4". You could type "ping -6", press "F3″, and the system would automatically fill in "", making the current line "ping -6".

How to Clear the Command History In Command Prompt (CMD)

You can tell the Command Prompt to not remember any commands you've typed in the current session by setting the history size to 0 with the doskey command:doskey /listsize=0

You won't be able to use the arrow keys, F7 key, or doskey /history command to see any commands you've typed after setting the list size to 0. This change also only takes effect for the current Command Prompt window, so the Command Prompt window will remember history as normal the next time you close and reopen it.

You can use the cls (clear screen) command to clear your Command Prompt window, erasing all history of the commands you typed without closing the window:cls

How to Save Your Command History In Command Prompt (CMD)

If you ever need to save a history of the commands you typed in a Command Prompt window, you can do it by running the doskey /history command and routing its output to a text file. (You could also just run the doskey /history command and copy/paste text to another application, of course.)

For example, the following command will save a copy of your current Command Prompt window's command history to the C:\Users\name\Desktop\commands.txt file on your system.doskey /history > C:\Users\name\Desktop\commands.txt

The > character redirects the output of the command to the file you specify.

Open the file in a text editor to view the history of commands typed in that Command Prompt session.

This Malware is Ready To Erase All Your Data From Your Hard Disk

This malware "StoneDrill", as named by the security company Kaspersky, has code similar to that used in Shamoon, a plague that appeared in 2012 and deleted information from 35,000 computers from Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia's state-owned and the world's largest oil company.

According to the security company Kaspersky, StoneDrill is equipped with modules for spying purposes and can also function as ransomware, encrypting files with the password and then asking for redemption for the victims.

It is compiled in 32 and 64 bits and can be controlled remotely by the hackers. However, the most interesting thing about this severe malware is that it is less dependent on external servers than Shamoon to do the damage.

Now, many of you might be wondering that "How are the companies attacked by StoneDrill?" As Ars Technica shows, malware is smart enough to hide from antivirus and other security mechanisms: instead of using HD to install itself on the machine, as a common pest would do, it infiltrates the RAM region associated with User's browser and then it simply injects a module that cleans all the stored data.

But, for now, you do not have to worry so much about StoneDrill because the target seems to be a big company in Europe, linked to the petrochemical industry. However, Shamoon has hit a large corporation in Saudi Arabia, and other malware has done a nice cleanup on computers from banks in South Korea.

How To Know Your Computer/PC is Infected With Virus Via Signs/Symptoms

How To Know Your Computer/PC is Infected With Virus Via Signs/Symptoms 

Pop-Up Ads

This is the most common form of malware, known as adware. It pops up advertisements and various kinds of messages on a user's system. These ads are generally about discount offers, surveys, dating or lottery winning.

Some ads may resort to scaring users. Either by telling users that there is a problem in their computer system or that their bank account information is expiring.

These ads are not only annoying but also dangerous because they might have hidden spyware inside them. An infection might result in personal identity theft and financial loss.

To get rid of adware or spyware, you should use effective anti-malware software like MalwareFox.

Antivirus Disabled Automatically

If you have security software installed, its real-time protection might be disabled. In some cases, your system's update module may not seem to be working.

Malware is developed by cunning minds that want to remove any obstacle that prevents running a malicious process on a user's computer. Antivirus programs can create a problem in the full functioning of malware programs and hence, it's often disabled automatically.

This is an alarming situation that should be dealt with immediately. Advanced malware cannot be removed with traditional antivirus programs and that's why a full scan of your computer with anti-malware program is essential.

New / Unknown Programs Launching

  • Are you seeing new icons on your desktop?
  • Any unknown programs starting up as soon as you boot up your computer?
If yes, then it is probably a malware infection that was installed previously with some other software. They are known as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP Malware) that come bundled with freeware programs.

Of course, that doesn't mean all free software programs are malware, but many developers use this kind of technique to make money.

To avoid it, you must be careful when installing any programs and should not agree to any installations without reading the agreement first. Tools like Unchecky should be used to prevent unwanted program installation.

Web Browser acting out of Control

Browser Hijacking is a form of malware which makes your web browser begin to act weird.

Search engines might get redirected to pages that are combinations of fake sites and ads. Or your homepage might get changed without your consent. Or you might be forced to visit certain, random webpages.

Programs like MalwareFox have a browser cleanup module that can remove this malware.

Friends complain about receiving spam messages from you

Hackers can gain control of your social media or email accounts without even knowing your password. They sometimes just steal a cookie from an active user session and use it to authenticate a login to one of your accounts.

Once compromised, accounts can be used to send spam messages to your contact list and spread malware to your friends' computers.

To get ahold of the situation, you must log out of your online account from all devices. Then, set a strong new password that is difficult to guess.

Use of 2-Factor Authentication and Password Manager is recommended in such cases.

Slow-down of Computer/PC

If computer boot up is taking longer than usual, it may be a symptom of rootkit, which gets embedded into your processor's memory.

There might be slow down in the overall performance of your computing too. It happens because malware uses up available system resources leaving less space for other legitimate programs to operate normally.

You should immediately check running processes in Task Manager of your Windows system. Look out for suspicious names in the list or run an anti-malware scan if nothing is found.

Increased Internet Bandwidth Usage

Malware communicates with hackers either to transmit user data or receive information about a user's further activities. They generally use what's known as a Command and Control server for this purpose.

Due to an increase in network activity, internet bandwidth gets utilized at a faster pace.

You must monitor network activity, specifically the programs that are uploading data in the background. Programs like Glasswire for Windows and Little Snitch for Mac might come in handy.

How to avoid a Malware Infection:

  • You must be well educated about cyber security to avoid such risks. Knowing how malware works and spreads can help you stay safe.
  • It is far easier to prevent a malware attack than you think. Make sure you act wisely while browsing internet.
  • Never download files from untrusted sources / unknown email senders.
  • Avoid visiting suspicious websites.
  • Take immediate action to remove unwanted applications.
  • Always have a primary antivirus and antimalware protection program
