Watch This First-Introduction-Video 1 – Most Popular Internet Scams

Since the start of the internet, Cyber criminals have been everything and anything to scam a buck out of you, and they’re REALLY good at it now. With today’s tools and technology, it’s almost impossible for a regular consumer to know they’re in a scam because it’s setup so well.

Internet services and websites make it easy for us to pay bills, shop, connect with anyone, make online reservations and even work, especially work from home. And you can do any of these things from anywhere in the world making our lives so much easier.

But as I said before, security is not about convenience, which is why online cyber crime has rocketed. Just to give you an example, ransomeware criminals earned a billion dollars over the last 18 months, and I’ll show you why in a bit.

People don’t realize that everything they post online can be used against them in a cyber crime. Most of the time there’s little we can do about it because the information we post online is used to do business.

As you probably noticed, no one is holding up and robbing banks anymore. The online crime business has allowed organized crime to hide their tracks, create diversions, and easily dup citizens into opting into a scam with far less effort than if it were done in the real world.

Today’s attack methods and tools use malicious software and vulnerabilities present in almost all the programs and apps. That’s why it’s so important to stay up to date with the latest patches and create strong passwords. One of the biggest issues I struggle with is helping law enforcement track back phishing scammers who deployed these attacks from unexpected regions of the world.

For this reason, you need to know about the most popular schemes and techniques used by cyber criminals in order to obtain your private information and financial data. So here we go !!
