If you use checkbook software Quicken — and even if you don’t — please take a minute to appreciate Quicken’s customer-friendly move. From within the program, Quicken warns you against Quicken imposters and then helps you, the customer, by giving you the correct number for their actual customer service.
Scammers try to get our attention by passing themselves off as “real” companies, and we often fall for it. But, knowing these scammers are out there, I think the “real companies” could do more — as Quicken has — to protect us.
If the actual companies announced “We don’t call you,” or “We don’t pop into your computer and scare you into believing you will lose all your data,” or “Your email account with us won’t expire with 24-hour notice,” I know I would appreciate such assurance and feel much safer.
So I’ve included Quicken’s support number below, pulled from within my Quicken account (I added the checkmark), in case you need it. But you don’t have to take my word for it. If you use Quicken, you’ve probably already seen it.
Maybe other companies will follow suit.
