But that can lead to other fears as well: Are you at risk fraud if you enter such personal information via a computer?

The short answer: If you’re safe, no. There are many ways to protect yourself from cyber scams.

Join myself and a representative from the Illinois attorney general’s office next Friday, March 19 at 1 p.m. for a free, virtual event to teach you how to protect yourself from tax fraud, and to learn about common scams seen throughout the pandemic.
