Don’t Be Fooled
Don’t know if you have been up to date with the current scams going on out there, but every week hackers and scam artists are crafting ever so creative new ways to scam us all.
It seems every week I get a phone call from the IRS saying they have a warrant for my arrest for unpaid taxes. Or I get an email phishing for personal information impersonating my bank or fake profile friend requests on Facebook.
The hacking and scam attempts have become so heightened to the point the IT Security team at my work sends me a scam of the week email with the new bad guys’ scams.
Just like these online predators, the enemy likes to invade when we least expect it.
With all the new technology and security measures in place, the little thieves in waiting learn how to adapt and discover different ways to break the boundaries of security to rob us of our identities and take everything they can get at our expense!
I appreciate my work emails warning me of the ever-evolving and lingering scams waiting to attack and invade my bank accounts. Their message is know before the scam. If it weren’t for them warning me I may fall victim to even more scams.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we were all warned about the scams and tricks of Satan before the attack?
A Scam of the Week email would be nice right?
These scams remind me of the Bible verse, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” Matthew 7:15
Imagine a wolf lurking around wearing a sheep’s costume. I know this isn’t possible, but just think for a moment what does a wolf gain by pretending to be a sheep? His next meal.
“For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14
