Social media is where a lot of black people hangout online. Its the place to be online. But African-Americans need to understand that social media is the heart of scam country.The newest social media scams are constantly evolving and becoming either more sophisticated or more irresistible. You need to know what the latest scams are and how they work. CSO has published a slide show of the newest social media scams and how they work. After reviewing the list I found that a lot of them are really very typical and play on a person’s greed and desire to get something for nothing. Many work by urging the victim to act quickly. Please remember that if you think you’re gonna get something for nothing its you who may be left with nothing. There is no software that can spot a scam. Why? Because scammers work on the person and their weaknesses and not the technology. So no anti-virus, no anti-malware, no spam blocker is going to protect you. You need to know what to look for and control your desire to get something for nothing.
Now you know.
