Imagine receiving a phone call and a desperate voice claims to be in trouble and in need of your financial help. What if the voice sounded like a loved one’s? How would you react? Would you break down and send money? What if you later realized your loved one actually is safe and sound, and the call was actually a scam?

Cybersecurity, in today’s ever-growing digital age, is no joke. In the US in 2023 alone, there were more than 856,000 instances of imposter fraud that occurred. The Federal Trade Commission reported that US$2.7 billion were drained nationwide, making this the most common type of fraud in the country that year. The good news, though, is education can go a long way in prevention and keeping your family safe.
