Technology was meant to make us safer. It has solved many problems and given us boundless new opportunities but it has opened up a whole new world for scammers and in that trusting over-sharing world we are all vulnerable. But we do not need to be.
Find out the psychology behind every scam you come across. It may surprise you to discover that almost all scams have been around for centuries. Learn how to spot the signs and avoid becoming a victim.
As I’ve said during every security lecture I’ve given for the past ten years, ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.’ The problem is we are relying on more tech to keep us safe rather than logic and human intuition. Some people are hearing this warning for the first time. The worst time to hear it is five minutes after you’ve been scammed. Please don’t let it be you.
