In this digital realm there are lots of scammers who will try to pick your digital pockets, so you need to learn to be street smart. Here are some BIG scams to watch out for, which I have either seen personally or have had close friends fall victim to.

As a general rule, never give out your private information, passwords or account numbers out to anyone who calls you unannounced – no matter who they claim to be!

In this video we’ll give you the best ways to know your enemy and protect yourself:

00:00 – Intro
00:56 – Giveaways
01:54 – Don’t trust the “celebrities”
02:34 – Popular email phishing scams
04:32 – Your phone number is PUBLIC
05:27 – SCAM: Appeals to authority
06:00 – The FAMILY TRAGEDY scam
06:42 – How well do you know that person you’re chatting to online?
07:11 – Grooming
07:59 – 2FA
08:26 – Vaults
08:44 – Passwords (watch for good password hygiene!)

I will NEVER contact you to offer advice, counseling, or free crypto and neither will any REAL person. Scammers can do LOTS of damage, so be vigilant and share this information with your family, especially those who may be older or less comfortable in the digital realm!
