Just in time for New Year’s, we’ve added a couple of new resolutions to consider as scams get more sophisticated. This is a two- to three-minute read on ways to help boost your finances and protect your personal information.
New to the list:

Remember, and remind your loved ones, that gift cards are for gifts, not to pay bills, taxes or legal fees, or to get discounts on other purchases.
