Cyber Security S3, E5 – Romance Scams – Seniors Beware!


JackieR Be Smarter Than Your Phone – Romance Scams. It’s My Duty to Scam that Booty  – S3 | E5
Welcome back to Jacqueline Robinson Lawson, affectionately known as JackieR, Hot and Mobile Technology for Out and About. If you are looking for a dynamic, Keep it Real, Real Cyber Security Speaker, visit my website at hotandmobile.com
My passion is for you to trust me to show you how to “Be Smarter Than Your Phone”!
In this Episode – Be Smarter Than Your Phone – Romance Scams. It’s My Duty to Scam that Booty
There is a famous line Samuel L. Jackson uttered in the movie “Shaft”. He said, “it’s my duty to please that booty!” It was funny and used as a term of endearment.  However, scammers are using the phrase another way.  They are scamming unsuspecting victims with “It’s My Duty to Scam that Booty!”
Valentine’s Day is a time that those looking for love are expecting for their love interest to express their feelings some kind of pleasing way. However, it is also a time when online scammers are the most active knowing that people are venerable and at their weakest. It has been reported that online dating scams are on the rise, with women and men losing millions of dollars to fraudsters. Seniors ages 55 – 64 are at a higher risk of being scammed, for reasons that escape me, allowing themselves to be tricked into sending money to scammers. What is a Romance Scam? And, what are some of the things you can do to keep yourself from becoming a victim? JackieR goes into detail in this Podcast discussing what you should do:
  • What is a Romance Scam
  • Romance Scams on the Rise
  • Online dating scams of older adults
  • Romance scams are prevalent in California
  • Warning signs to watch for
  • How to report a scam
JackieR is fiercely committed to informing and educating people so they can protect themselves from cyber attacks on their mobile devices. Smartphones are hacked, money is stolen, bank accounts are compromised, credit is ruined, and the fraudsters make more money scamming others during a time people desperately need their money. Unless mobile device users know their options, it’s just a matter of time before they are victimized themselves. Data breaches cost thousands to millions of dollars per incident, and organizations and corporations take on a huge potential financial loss when it comes to the potential of identity theft and data forfeiture. The attacks continue to get worse, every year. The Cyber Security Podcast series is JackieR’s way of showing you how to Be Smarter Than Your Phone!
JackieR is all about RESULTS. – Her online workshops are designed to not only teach people about cyber security but also show them step-by-step mobile device settings to protect against cyber attacks.
