Episode #12 Scammy Shit



Scams, scams, everywhere are scams and misinformation.

In the digital world, it is more important than ever to be able to recognize scams and misinformation. The cybercriminals continue to evolve their tactics, they are playing a longer game these days, making it harder to detect when scams are afoot. scams come in so many flavors, pet scams, romance scams, business scams, COVID scams, charity scams, product scams, and the list goes on and on.

 Scams include counterfeit goods and services not to mention the psychological warfare being waged against the world via social media and traditional media. if we continue to allow this to go unchecked we will find ourselves in a world we never wanted and can not escape. if we are going to live digital-first lives we must adopt the necessary skills to do so safely and step one is the ability to identify scams and misinformation.

tonight we will talk about what is a scam, how do you identify it, what are the right questions to ask, who do you tell if you think you're being scammed, how do you recover if you have been scammed. what do we as an industry need to do to help build better detection and protection against scams and misinformation?
