Throughout the entire month of October, GGA will be offering free use of our ScamAssist™ service to all consumers. ScamAssist is a service that, with the assistance of our expert Resolution Specialists, takes solicitations you receive, performs expert research of the solicitations, and delivers case-by-case assessments on the likelihood of it being a scam. With the help of GGA’s ScamAssist, your risk of inadvertently providing funds or sensitive information to a con artist will be greatly reduced.
So, what do you need to do in order to take advantage of this month-long offer?
Simply call us at 866.311.1488 with the solicitation (acceptable solicitation types listed below) using policy number CSAM 2020, and allow our specialists to review and research any unfamiliar solicitation offering a supposed benefit or requesting payment and/or other personal information.
Our Resolution Specialists will then provide you with guidance on the probable legitimacy of the solicitation. Within two (2) business days of receipt of messages, our Resolution Specialists will:
- Scrutinize message(s) customers have received for signs of fraud;
- Conduct research on any organizations a solicitation claims to be from;
- Compare offers to other known scams and phishing attempts;
- Provide a written assessment of what we believe is the level of legitimacy of the received message.
