Scam Avoidance and Trust

For as long as humans have been communicating with each other, scams have existed in one form or another.  We no longer just have our front door or home phone to guard against scammers, and now the baddies have multiple ways to make the victim immediately become susceptible to blind trust actions.  Join Lawrence Patterson (ISSO, ITIL & two decades supporting people’s personal/ professional technology needs) as he reviews the significant difference between blind and wise trust, the various scam sources, tips to be aware of, details common to all scams and, most importantly, how to take control.  As we review the various scam methods, participants will be encouraged to speak out on their own examples as we all learn how to become more aware and protect our electronic and personal lives.
