More scams to be on the lookout for are last-minute email scams, e-services scams, tax-themed phishing and malware scams, illegitimately mailed out tax bills, and tax related phone calls asking for personal data. Scammers are pulling out all the stops and using email, postal mail, phone, the internet and even social media to pull off their scams to fatten their wallets at tax-payers’ expense.

Financial Planning for WomenThere’s no question that finance is traditionally a male-dominated industry. Though the number of female financial professionals has increased dramatically over the last several years, there is a lingering sense among many female consumers that they are not part of the club when it comes to fully understanding and controlling their finances.
